    Who is offered more lucrative salary, Lawyer or a Solicitor?

    From my childhood I had aimed to be a part of Indian Law. But to sustain in this world I also need to think about my career and its lucrative facilities. Can you Please help me by providing necessary information for the Lawyer and Solicitor post and also the salary package of each?

    Hello Aspirant,

    Any citizen who possess Bachelor in Law can be lawyer to practice in any court on legal matter after registering his/her name & qualification to Bars Association.

    Where as a solicitor is a qualified person who represents & advise his clients.It can advocate in court & is usually specialised in a certain area of law.

    Lawyer is a general term for licensed to practice law in the US & the term solicitor is mainly used in UK,New Zealand,Australia,Ireland & some parts of the US.

    A lawyer can give legal advice & can represent individuals or entities in legal matters.

    A solicitor deals directly with the public or a corporation & can advise legally.

    To my mind the solicitor gets more income than lawyer.

    Good luck.

    Dear user

    Lawyers can find employment opportunities in public and private sector organisations. Most Lawyers prefer to become an advocate and practice law as a profession. For that they have to enroll with the Local/State Government jobs are also open to Lawyers. They can be appointed as Judges of various courts, as Attorney and Solicitor General, as Public Prosecutor and also in Defense, Tax and Labour departments. Moreover Lawyer can also work as legal counsel and legal advisers for firms, organisations and families. They also can be appointed as Company Secretaries in various firms. They also can work with legal consultancy firms dealing with tax, excise, patent, labour and environmental laws. They also can work as trustees of various trusts, law reporters in media industries. Besides Lawyers have also ample career options in Law schools and collages as a teacher/professor. In addition to this Lawyers also can join politics because they have large public contacts. These non-profit organisations like NGOs are need the service of Lawyers.

    Salaries of experienced attorneys vary widely according to the type, size, and location of their employer. A qualified lawyer employed in government department has pay packages as per the terms and conditions of the government. Those appointed as judges have good remunerations and other perks offered by the government. Lawyers preferring private sector have more lucrative pay packages. The earnings of lawyers working privately as advocate or consultant depends upon the number and nature of their clients.

    But salaries of a layer is far grater than solicitor. I would prefer you to go for lawyer as it is your aim also and salaries are more lucrative.

    Good luck
