I hope you're not planning on actually using those business cards in the legal field. Otherwise you're likely going to get a lot of laughs and snickers behind your back.A J.D. isn't considered a doctorate in the legal field. A LLM is more the "doctorate" There's a reason lawyers overwhelmingly use Esquire after their name, as opposed to addressing themselves as "Doctor so-and-so"So save the "Doctorate" business cards for the family.
sorry, but if you think a JD is equivalent to a doctorate, then that's just third tier toilet
Some of you people are worse off than I thought for wanting to use the title "Dr." after getting a JD.
Luckily, my parents were really low key for Asian parents, and I've never been pressured on my career choices.I think there's more emphasis on becoming a doctor in the South Asian community than in the East Asian community, but there's still a lot of pressure to get some sort of advanced degree. Or become ibankers. At least that's the impression that I get.Oh and yay Chicago!
