The Wages of Law

The ABA Journal has a site (here) where you can find out what lawyers earn in counties from around the US. In Marion County, Indiana, which is coterminous with the City of Indianapolis, the mean salary for attorneys is $105,990; the median salary is $95,030; and the 75th percentile salary is $126,340.

Given all the dire news out there about change in the legal profession and reports questioning whether law school is worth the money, it is useful to remember that lawyers still earn, on average, a comparatively good living.
