salaries

Postby itsfine » Sat May 29, 2010 3:59 pm

So I know that the big time salary is in the 145 to 160k range, and I see the lower end salary jobs hover around 45 to 60k, but what about the middle? Are there any 80-120k jobs? I never really see those salaries mentioned and it seems like an important aspect when trying to gauge the risk of going to law school versus taking a job now and deciding not to attend. So simply put, do those salries really exist or are they pretty rare to come across? thanks

Plenty of jobs in non-major markets pay ~100K. Patent boutiques generally pay around that as well.

Those jobs are not as mythical as some would have you believe.

Uh 160K would be the biggest salary I've heard a grad getting straight out of law school.

Then you've never been to McKinsey. But working as a lawyer, yes.

If you have to ask, you're probably not gonna get one.
