"Benmashi", also called "wizard barristers", are a type of lawyer that deals with lawsuits involving wizards. They defend wizards in the Court for Magic.

Info Edit

Wizard barristers's purpose is to uphold the basic rights of wizards, when they are tried in the Court for Magic. When a wizard is put on trial, they are given the basic right to a wizard barrister, akin to an ordinary human's right to a defense attorney. Although they deal with cases in which the defendant is a magic user, the case does not necessarily have to involve the use of magic to involve defense via benmashi, as was the case when Kujira Shibuki was accused of committing murder via stabbing.
