Why is the character needing to roll dice? Is this part of the snake eyes roll you were talking about earlier?

The character probably has some basic degree from a law school, represented by Advocate-1. His augmented EDU means he has a huge database implanted, and his skill augment means he can access this database very efficiently. So, he won't embarrass himself in court, and he is totally able to disrupt and delay any court case by citing rules, regulations and precedences out of his "head". He can prepare a case, and he would be a very valuable assistant to any real lawyer, but he isn't a well trained lawyer himself.

And in a setting where augmentations are widespread, the other side in a court case will (if they can afford it) also have augmented lawyers with the same augments, and to convince a judge and/or jury, you don't need EDU, you need SOC, so he is down to a +2, and he will have to beat his opponent in an opposed test. So he is mostly impressive on paper, not in "real life".
