Lawyers tend to be more intelligent + earn more money whereas doctors tend to be less arrogant + have a better reputation. Who would you rather date?
lawyers consistently use arguments, both verbally and in writing. arguments require logic to be clear and acceptable to a judge and jury.
medicine (all memorization) = harder in terms of volume of work. law (logic and reasoning) = harder conceptually.
anyways, thanks for your answers.

i just saw your comments below and though I admit that you have a point, what you are doing is overgeneralizing. that makes your argument invalid.
the amount a person earns vary from every situation and from every location and culture. True, both of these positions are prestigious jobs and are highly esteemed by people. When they hear you're a doctor or a lawyer, they look up to you.
But having this job does not necessarily mean you will have a huge income. It depends on what path you will take in your profession. For instance, a doctor may choose to work in rural areas to help those that do not have adequate access to proper health care instead of working for private, high-paying hospitals. Similarly, lawyers may choose to be people's lawyer's and serve for free (say, defending human rights victims who do not have the funds to get a lawyer), instead of serving for corporations (where the huge money is at). You should know that both fields of study have several specializations, and that is major factor as well.
Do not overgeneralize. Life isn't always black and white.
So to answer your question, it wouldn't really matter much to me. I would date a doctor, a lawyer, an artist, a musician, a teacher..basically anything. I'd learn new things from them either way, and I am very open to different kinds of people.
You seem bent on defending the law profession already. Do you intend to be a lawyer too in the future? :)
