    depends - doctors are typically more in demand than, say, solicitors, or most barristers
    but court judges vs surgeons? that's a hard one...

    Both quite hard.

    Who has it better?
    Depends on too many things to state a predicate determining it to be one way or the other.

    Who's more respectable?
    As in, who can you respect more? Subjective, down to both socio-normative etiquette in a given area and the individual opinion.

    Your opinions...
    This thread is silly.

    Lawyer is more fun, but this is entirely dependent on which sector you go into. Corporate and criminal I think are the most fun. Family law doesn't interest me.

    Doctors are more respected though, but are also often paid less.

    I think doctors...

    I know loads of people who got into law degrees but aren't really that intelligent. While to get into medicine you need really high grades and it is very competitive!

    Doctors have patience life in their hands! While lawyers have serious decisions to make so do doctors that can effectively end someone's life!

    So I think being a doctor is harder and also more respected
