No, definitely not. Purely because I would not be able to defend someone that I judged badly, as I couldn't not attach myself emotionally.
Depending on the individual case of course, not everyone is guilty.

I originally wanted to, but got into civil litigation instead, and I know now there is no way I would cope with criminals as clients..

YES, IF I thought there was the possibility they were innocent or there was a need for their actions(kill or be killed) type thing. I could never defend someone who outright admitted it and was no doubt of being guilty. BUT I will never be a lawyer and HOPE I NEVER have to do jury duty(if that is even possible lol.
I believe we all deserve a fair trial and we are all innocent until proven guilty(even then I do not believe all guilty are guilty)
At the end of the day it is a job and I would never judge them for that. It would be like saying all butchers/boners are sick sadistic blah blah.... just because they are capable of doing that job. I do not envy them imagine what they deal with everyday criminal lawyers.

If Law was my passion, and that was my job, yes. You do your job and move on.

No way. I have a friend who does and he says its more about getting 'one up' on the other lawyer. He is a very driven person and has a bit of an ego.
