The inclination of modern jurists to associate lawyers with doctors: Plato's response inGorgias 464–465 [Book Review]

Abstract
From the turn of the century, jurists have tended to associate lawyers with doctors as professionals and tried to ground this association in an analogy between law and medicine. Paradoxically, such comparisons suggest that American law and medicine are not analogous, while an analogy proposed by Plato illumines more fundamental respects in which law and medicine might be truly analogous.
