a coroner or a district judge??

aren't they remarkably different professions?

CountessDracula Mon 11-Apr-05 19:48:52

They are but they are both areas he could get into, he is a lawyer at the moment

Twiglett Mon 11-Apr-05 19:53:23

Like Quincy, only with a better car you mean ?

CountessDracula Mon 11-Apr-05 20:11:48

I don't know what car Quincy had I'm afraid
I thought he was a pathologist but haven't seen for years...

county coroner surely

Twiglett Mon 11-Apr-05 21:02:14

complete with theme tune [grin]

don't you have to be a doctor as well as a lawyer to be a coroner?

mummytosteven Mon 11-Apr-05 21:49:32

no it's either a doctor or a lawyer (but fraid that's all I know about being a coroner!)

secretregular Mon 11-Apr-05 22:02:44

think i'm getting confused with patricia cornwell novels!

mummytosteven Mon 11-Apr-05 22:04:36

did Kay Scarpetta do law school as well then - I remember her being one of two women in her med school and people not lending her notes when she was ill in one of the Patricia Cornwell books?

secretregular Mon 11-Apr-05 22:08:06

yes she was a lawyer and a doctor. cornwell never really talks about her being a lawyer just refers to the fact she is in several books. Am a big fan but hated her last one

mummytosteven Mon 11-Apr-05 22:09:18

yes, I'm not really a Lucy fan, and she's taking too much of a role in recent books. think the last few books after Point of Origin are a bit rubbish tbh.

She's becoming a bit "chief of the world" in the latest books!

CountessDracula Mon 11-Apr-05 22:52:56

at the mo you can be lawyer or doctor to be coroner, they are about to change so you can only do if you are lawyer.

DH is medical lawyer

one thing I was wondering is whether your DH has had a chat with his firm about this yet - just wondered if being a coroner, given his line of work is med neg, would be likely to cause more problems re:potential conflict of interest than being a district judge

or is your DH thinking of leaving private practice?
