The average trainee solicitor salary is expected to rise by 2.8 per cent in 2008 while investment banking and fund manager salaries are predicted to remain static.
This is the first time law firms have topped the survey albeit jointly. Compared with the figures published in the previous winter review, these salaries represent a considerable increase for law firms, but a slight drop (from £36,000) for City bankers or fund managers.
The median starting salary paid to graduates at AGR employers stood at £23,500 in 2007, according to the review, and is expected to inch up by a modest 2.1 per cent this year despite a predicted 16 per cent rise in vacancies.
