Who has the most respect: Lawyers or DoctorsWatch
which I thought was borderline ******ed but out of curiosity, what does the Great British public deem as the most respectable profession (out of the 2 of course) ?
I personally respect Doctors (and Engineers) more than Lawyers
I think Drs are generally more highly regarded because they're helping society rather than taking money from poor unsuspecting people and charging extortionate fees (this isn't my view lol)
I speak as a law student...
different type of respect
I'm not sure I respect Lawyers more per se, but I would rather be a Lawyer than a Doctor.
Anyone that devotes their life to the selfless care of others, has my respect.
The law is a (rightly) well regarded profession but no more so than stockbroking, accountancy, architecture, or any number of other jobs.
Put a poll if you're not convinced
Doctors obviously, why would you ever respect a lawyer, perhaps with the exception of human rights lawyers, but even then its questionable whether they would still fight for human rights if we more than halved their paycheque!
