Lawyers’ wages grew slower than inflation from 2017 to 2018, according to data in the American Bar Association’s first annual profile of the legal profession.

The average lawyer’s salary rose 1.6 percent, which is a little lower than the 2.1 percent rate of inflation for the same period. 

The ABA released the 99-page report on Aug. 10 at its annual meeting in San Francisco. Read more of the data here.
