Female in-house lawyers earning less than men

The ACC’s 2018 Global Compensation Survey, which received responses from over 5,000 corporate counsel worldwide, including over 400 in Australia, revealed that despite a mean salary for female in-house counsel of $141,000, men receive $169,000, marking a 16.5 per cent disparity.
At the entry level, women make 91 per cent of what men earn: the median base salary for those in a position for one year or less is $110,000 for females and $120,000 for males.
While the gender pay gap is smaller in the Australian in-house sphere than the global trend, there remains a 22 per cent difference between the median salary for females ($210,000) and males ($270,000).
