Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of salary does a BigLaw lawyer make?

Most Biglaw firms operate on the Cravath scale, which is when law firms follow suit of other law firms with regards to the salaries paid to associates.

Are there pay cuts for big law firms?

However, many Big Law firms instituted pay cuts in 2020 as a result of the ongoing pandemic. Big Law firms typically use a scale that bases your salary on your law school class.

What does BigLaw stand for in law firm?

The memo also stated that Davis Polk expects to pay "year-end bonuses at least in the amount paid last year." Biglaw has no official definition but loosely refers to the nation’s largest law firms by headcount, smaller firms that pay at the market rate or medium-sized firms with international reach.

What's the lowest paid job in the law?

The following are some of the lowest-paid legal jobs, for your reference.
