Relation between law and Medicine
Lawyers working in these areas only need to study basics of medicine so that they can handle matters coming to them successfully.
Basic science knowledge would be sufficient for the others
Once there were three gifted children..Anne, Bob and Cate…and there was a flute.
Anne says of the three, only she knows how to play the flute, which Bob and Cate doesn’t dispute
Cate says she is poor and she has no other toy than this flute, which Anne and Bob doesn’t dispute
Bob says he made flute, which Anne and Cate doesn’t dispute
If all these 3 children are fighting for the only available flute- Justice will be served when which of these children gets the flute?
Doctors need to understand that basic nature of law is adversarial & the core theme of law is a variable called justice which varies according to individual philosophy of lawyers and judges.
Lawyers need to understand that medicineis not only a science but also an Art –the Art of healing where individual judgment of the Doctor which is a variable impacts the decision making process.
but we need much more at the ground level….
