    It so happens that I have the May 2018 edition of Chicago Lawyer magazine in front of me, which includes their annual pay survey.

    Key stats:

    1. Since 1985, first-year Illinois lawyer earnings have risen 49.5%. The cost of in-state law school tuition has gone up 489.4%

    2. Only six of the state's 9 law schools could boast that at least 60% of their 2016 graduates were working full time as attorneys.

    3. The starting salary of a first-year associate at the top firms in the city is $180,000. The dropoff after the top firms is significant, after the top 30, they're making under $120,000.

    4. The average law school graduate has about $200,000 in debt. Most are still carrying the bulk of their undergraduate school debt.

    Pete (found that rather timely)

    Is the market that over saturated with attorneys?

    I'm sure with free money for everyone to go to school forever, that's part of it. I'm sure a lot of the graduates can't pass the Bar exam too.

    Steve (knows there's a huge incentive for schools to keep taking that free money even from students who shouldn't be there)

    The Oversaturated Job Market for Lawyers Continues, and On-The-Side Legal Work Grows

    In most of the U.S., and for many law school graduates, the legal job market continues to be lousy. This has been a big storyline for several years, and potential law students ó not to mention law schools themselves ó appear to be getting the message. As the Wall Street Journalís Law Blog noted in December, first-year enrollment at U.S. law schools sank to the lowest total since 1977. The 39,675 full- and part-time students enrolled marks a 31% drop since 2010, when more than 52,000 were enrolled.

    I make as much as you, but I guess I was raised not to discuss such things.
