A prospective law school student has many options in Canada.
When focusing on first-year tuition alone, a school student can expect to pay anywhere from about $4,000 to nearly $30,000. A law school graduate’s first-year salary after being called to the bar varies widely across the country. A random sampling of earnings revealed a lawyer can anticipate $57,500 in Eastern Canada, but a first-year lawyer might negotiate a starting salary in excess of $100,000 with a larger Toronto firm.
So break out the abacus, a little simple math can help you figure out how many years of lawyering it might take to pay back those student loans.
