Law School vs. Med School: Which Is Harder?

Devin Stone, the Legal Eagle himself, challenged me to a debate over which was harder: Med School or Law School. So he got a COVID test and came to New York to hold a mock trial face to face. Med School was BRUTAL, but I never spent a moment in law school so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Devin has debunked legal misinformation from famous movies like Legally Blonde and shows like Suits, so I was in for a challenge. Needless to say, Devin brought his A-game and showed me a thing or two. What do you think? Which is harder? Let me know in the comments.

  • There's actually more to the bar than just "the bar exam" that everyone's heard of. The bar exam is multiple days, and there's also a separate ethics test called the MPRE that you have to pass. Then there's a character & fitness screening that you have to pass as well. "The bar" has a lot more parts to it than people are aware of.

  • Both are hard in their own ways. Lawyers haven't been to med school, docs haven't been to law school or had to pass the bar. I find it sad that people insist their field is harder- people constantly boasting about how hard it is usually make grad school/their career their whole personality, and no one likes those people.

  • Been in engineering then finance then med school (ongoing). Med school is by far the hardest thing I have ever come across. The amount of studying required to become a doctor is simply incredible. I doubt anybody can TRULY understand how challenging med school is without actually experiencing it.

  • Lawyer here. I am pretty sure that med school is harder. If you like to read and humanities/philosophy in general you should like law school. Law school is very interesting and it is very logical. The problem is that some professors want to elaborate ridiculous and impossible exams. But the subject itself is quite logical.

  • Bold move, getting into an argument with a *lawyer.* But I’m still going to go with Med School. Not just because of the pressure and difficulty, but the fact that you are literally training to be in charge of saving a person’s life.

  • Hi! I'm from Brazil and I'm also a new fan of the channel. And fun fact ( kind of) in Brazil law school lasts 5 years, while med school lasts for 6 years. Besides that, the "rivalry" between the students of both courses it's basically the same lol.

  • Umm he didn’t go to medical school, he’s not an MD .. just thought I throw it out there for you sheep.. he’s a DO which is a half step above a chiropractor.. do some research

    Ryan GlassRyan GlassPrije 2 dana
    • Family physicians can have either an MD or DO behind their name. While MD is more common, a PHP who has a DO behind their name specialize in looking at the body from the lens of how your body works as a unit as opposed to your individual organs or issues. DOs are more likely to look at more holistic and nonprescription options first like PT, OT, simple orthotics if they notice you have foot issues that will impact the rest of your body before prescribing medication. They are still certified medical professionals and I had one for many years before she retired. She also specialized in women’s health. There’s no difference in the quality of care, except issues like pronation, supination and limb discrepancies will most likely be caught earlier.

    • @Anthony Sclafani Lawyers are like Politicians. There are Very Few that are not self absorbed, greedy bastards... They also get Worse as they Age.

      Mik WriMik WriPrije 7 sati
    • @Mik Wri You'd be surprised at how many people get a lawyer. I've never been divorced or had divorced parents, but I do think sometimes it's the right decision. Custody cases can be very messy. I work in a PI/crim defense firm and no one wants a lawyer, they come to us because they need help. I could argue drs profit off the sick & dying, which is technically true but misrepresents the field. Lawyers are needed to maintain the law, people just don't realize how essential the field is till they need a lawyer. Laws affect everything.

      Anthony SclafaniAnthony SclafaniPrije 8 sati
    • @Anthony Sclafani good point! Drs are needed. Lawyers, pretty much only if you live a shitty life and want tp abandon your family... But to do it Civily...

      Mik WriMik WriPrije 8 sati
    • Doctors have more immediate health concerns, but lawyers also have major long-term implications in their work. Family lawyers determine divorce and custody of the kids. Public interest & employment fight for safety protections for workers- weekends wouldn't be a thing had it not been for lawyers. Defense attys determine if you go to jail, if you don't go to jail, how much time you spend in jail. As for avoiding public defenders, plenty of people get falsely accused. "Ambulance chasers" actually aren't a thing like people expect, lawyers can't solicit clients face to face. Personal injury lawyers are actually on the drs' side, their job is to get insurance to pay so that med bills are paid and hospitals aren't sending debt collectors. Also, lawyers are the ones protecting doctors when some patient's trying to sue them.

  • You guys could have just asked someone who went to both law school and medical school. like cough cough me. Graduated cum laud, passed my state bar in the top 4%, law school is downright easy. I would estimate medical school to be about 3 times more difficult than law school. As a comparison for lawyers to understand, medical school is like finals week the entire time. Law school cost about 1/2.

    • I should say after making this broad sweeping statement that while getting an MD probably does provide instant credibility with some. Other individuals(Me) may be skeptical of a lot b/c I worked in medicine for a while, and saw too much behind the curtain. So, basically what I said was unfair.
