How much are lawyers really paid?

Law graduates can expect to earn 54,000 when they walk into their first job and most will see their pay rise by a staggering 25,000 every five years. This starting salary is double the national average wage of around 27,000. A study of 400 UK lawyers found that on average the job pays 54,000 for the first five years, rising to 76,000 for those with five to 10 years of experience. Lawyers who have been practising for between 10 and 15 years can expect to earn 100,000, while those with more than 15 years can command 181,000 a year.
