Lawyer

A lawyer or attorney is a person who practices law, as an advocate, attorney, attorney at law, barrister, barrister-at-law, bar-at-law, canonist, canon lawyer, civil law notary, counsel, counselor, counsellor, solicitor, legal executive, or public servant preparing, interpreting and applying law, but not as a paralegal or charter executive secretary. Working as a lawyer involves the practical application of abstract legal theories and knowledge to solve specific individualized problems, or to advance the interests of those who hire lawyers to perform legal services.
The role of the lawyer varies greatly across legal jurisdictions, and so it can be treated here in only the most general terms.

Yes you can as a Muslim study law in any part of the world to defend the oppressed. You must avoid supporting any wrong even if it is done under a legal cover.

Wassalam.

to become a lawyer is permissible provided that you do not lie, cheat or support oppression and mischief against a third party.

Sometimes it may be very difficult to be "professionally clean" in certain circumstances but a Muslim is always required to behave at his best and to promote truth anywhere he is. 

With prayers for your success.

Studying to become a lawyer is allowed as far as you support the victims and the justice. Those lawyers who aim only to gain money and support the wrongdoers through legal tricks are doing wrong and their income from the wrong is unlawful.

It depends on you how you want to be. Obviously, the person who believes in Allah and Day of Judgment will never support the wrong, because he will face the miserable consequences.

This applies to other professions like medicine, education, business, etc which can be used in right way by good people, and wrong way by wrong people.

We encourage good persons to study law to support the innocent people.

Wassalam.
