Nice Salary if You Can Get It

The odd bimodal salary curve for new lawyers is looking stranger than ever.

Note, in terms of the diminishing number of jobs at the high end, I said "nice salary," not "nice job." It's possible to find joy and fulfillment, I suppose, as an associate in a big firm, pulling down a fantastic salary as you learn the basics of how to practice law. But day after day, year after year, with a lower chance than ever of making partner? Not appealing to me....
