Lawyers: To treat or not to treat?

“While it might not be a bad idea from one perspective to give trial attorneys a taste of life without physicians, surely we have a higher calling””to practice in “purity and holiness,” as the original Hippocratic oath says, or with “uprightness and honor” as in “A Physician’s Oath,” used by some med schools today. It’s risky, but the sick need the benefit of our art and practice. We’re used to caring for the unwanted and unlovable no matter what their lifestyle or profession, including trial lawyers.”
