First, the good news: British lawyers pull in more cash than their counterparts in economic powerhouses Mexico, Italy and South Africa.

Now the bad news: our solicitors and barristers earn less than lawyers in the US, the United Arab Emirates, Canada, Germany, France and China.

It gets worse. While British lawyers’ average salary of £50, 675 is higher – just – than the average legal wage in Brazil, our extortionate living costs mean that, in real terms, you’re better off practising law in Rio than London.
