Imagine how much time and money is wasted by courts considering crappy arguments made by attorneys who know that they're crap, but have to make them anyway, because they have this duty to advocate on behalf of their client, even if the client is clearly wrong.

Ah, but it can be difficult to know for sure that someone/thing is clearly wrong. After all, even if the attorney believes it to be wrong isn't it up to the judge/jury to determine if it is in fact clearly wrong?Therefore, the argument at least must be made regardless of the attorney's opinions. Also, if you're a defendant with your life on the line you may not think that trying every argument available under the law is really a waste of time...
I agree with the last post. Why are you in law school, if you can't understand such a simple concept, or worse if you disagree with such a simple concept? Also, there are a number of checks and balances to prevent frivolous cases from being filed.
