Some people believe that justice is best determined in a court of law, but I argue this principle. In my opinion, justice is the goal in a court of law, it's what you strive to achieve and unearth. Although justice is defined as equity, I think it is more about disclosing the whole truth. The truth should always prevail, as should justice in a court of law or in general social situations. You don't determine the truth, you know it; therefore, how can a court of law determine justice if it is simply the case? The courts are often biased towards which evidence is more compelling even if it isn't innocent. Sometimes justice depends on the prosecution and defense, and sometimes the guilty and the innocent are easily distinguished. In the end, the truth isn't determined or justified 100% of time; sometimes it's just hidden beneath deceit.
