How much does solicitors earn in UK?
The answer is simple. They earn just as much as they can screw out of you.
Barristers CAN earn over a million a year if very successful, meaning about £2500 a day which is over £100 an hour. I'm not sure exactly how much they DO earn in court but they have to do research and such as do solicitors so they would have to get paid for that too. It's hard to say as they work for themselves and set their own rates.
