What America's Lawyers Earn

It’s no secret that the business of practicing law has changed—and continues to change—in ways that are both subtle and dramatic.

We’ve covered that transformation over the years in these pages: technology-driven efficiencies, niche practices developed around social change, new challenges to the profession dictated by both gut-wrenching recession and fundamental industrial change.

But while our reporting on this metamorphosis has been solid, even at times prophetic, it’s been based in great part on the tools of journalism: anecdote, instinct and the oft-competing wisdom of any experts we can find.

With this issue, however, the ABA Journal is offering our readers a new—and we believe different—view of the business and the profession.
