Legal - What's Hot


What’s Hot: First, Lawyers at $139,880 and then Judges, Magistrate Judges, and Magistrates at $115,460 take the top spots on the Best Paid List in the Legal group. Perry Mason would also be amazed that Administrative Law Judges, Adjudicators, and Hearing Officers average $95,240.

What’s Not: In 2008, Judicial Law Clerks, headed up the Least Paid list at $40,580 as they awaited their recruitment to the top-paying law firms. That’s dramatically changed as at a MAW of $59,840, Clerks have relinquished the lowest paid spot to Title Examiners, Abstractors, and Searchers, who are at $51,490.
