The system is different in a trial there is the defense and the other side. The two try to do at best their job. If it's well done, the truth has a chance to get out of the tribunal, and a fair decision can be taken by the court.
IN short , every trial is A versus B judged by C. A and B have to be good, to allow C to judge.
