write a paper comparing and contrasting the role of the defense counsel with that of the prosecutor. Do you think that the defense council is the same as a defense attorney, I just think that this homework question is kind of vague without a lot of detail so I was thinking maybe someone could help with more insight if tey have done this assignment before or understand exactly what they are asking. Is there a difference between council and attorney on both the defense and prosecuting side?
Both are lawyers, but the defense attorney is committed to defending his/her client. The prosecutor acts for the state and is committed to seeing that the law is accurately administered.
Read these sites carefully.
Right but are attorney and council the same thing?
