    Dear Dr. Boli,
    At the risk of sounding like an uneducated buffoon, what does the LLD stand for after your name?
    Sincerely yours,
    Gentle Reader Scuba Joe

    How can Euphonium Man be an uneducated buffoon here and correct my spelling in an earlier post? How?? How??? At least he’s not an LLD.

    Dr. Boli may correct me if I’m wrong, but I think LL.D. stands for “limited liability doctor,” a legal term indicating that the holder of said title cannot be held legally or financially responsible if a patient or other customer seeks his counsel in an area outside of the subject in which he has gained his doctorate(s).

    For instance, a patient or client is perfectly free to consult, say, a person with a doctorate in paleobotany on the subject of the correct use and storage of high explosives. A paleobotanical LL.D. would prevent our hypothetical doctor from being sued and/or prosecuted for any advice he/she gave on the subject of explosives, should that advice be incorrect and result in the loss of life, limb or property of the poor schmoe who asked the question.
