The oath as an attorney

“Ik zweer (beloof) getrouwheid aan de Koning, gehoorzaamheid aan de Grondwet, eerbied voor de rechterlijke autoriteiten, en dat ik geen zaak zal aanraden of verdedigen, die ik in gemoede niet gelove rechtvaardig te zijn.”
I swear (promise) faithfulness to the King, obedience to the Constitution, respect for the judicial authorities, and that I will not recommend or defend a case that I am not convinced to be just.
Here you are, if a Dutch lawyer accept a law case what he believe is not justified he will lose his licence as a lawyer. Because he has promised this faithfulness to the King, the king we all have to obey here in Holland. we are all humble servants of our king, I told you before, me too.
Still a bad idea to have a little chat wit the Dutch branch of Jones Day, Vilgiant? What do you think yourself? I ask you because my mental state is sooooo weak, so some advice from a health mind like yours is sooooooo welcome!
