I assume you mean the starting salary of a lawyer? There's no simple answer, as there is so much variation. According to PayScale (website is payscale.com if you want more info), the median salary for a lawyer with less than 1 year of experience is $57,122. However; the larger firms usually have starting salaries of around $120k to $160k. So it really depends on how well you do in law school and also whether you want to work 80 hours a week as people often do in biglaw.
