Posted September 16, 2018 06:21:52 If you’re looking for the best possible job in the law, it’s time to look no further than a lawyer, says an article in the Financial Post.
“The best lawyer jobs in Australia are rare and elusive.
But if you’re a confident, ambitious young lawyer with a desire to do the right thing, the Australian legal system is the place to be,” says the article.
The article cites figures from a new Australian Lawyer’s Association survey.
Of the 10 law firms in the survey, eight of them were in the top ten for recruiting lawyers in Australia.
A study by the Law Society of Victoria and the Australian Law Schools (ALSO) found the average salary of a law student in Australia is $50,000.
Lawyers who work in the community are also among the most sought after in the legal world.
However, the salary gap between the top-earning lawyers and the community lawyers is wide, with the average Australian law student earning $75,000 a year, compared with $70,000 for community law students, according to the Lawyer Salary Survey.
In other words, there is plenty of money to be made in the local community, but a lot of money is still missing from the Australian community.
