Hi there!
I am conducting some
research into the income and earning levels of Nigerian lawyers. There has been
a lot of discussion and anecdotal information about how much Nigerian lawyers
are being paid (it was even brought up at the Annual NBA National Conference in
I have heard ‘stories’ of lawyers who are 5-year post call being paid as
little as N50,000 a month by their principals in the firm, and lawyers working
in legal departments of companies (generally oil companies) being paid upwards
of N1million a month.

I like to work with
verifiable data and so I am asking lawyers to anonymously conduct this survey
with their income levels. The data will be shared publicly once it is
collated in case anyone needs the information for research or just general
This survey is not an
undertaking to simply satisfy my curiousity, if you know me personally, you
would know that I am passionate about creating solutions that can improve
people’s lives.
I am currently working on
a couple of initiatives and projects with the aim of improving the productivity
and income of lawyers in Nigeria, and so this information is invaluable.
If you are a lawyer in
Nigeria, please click on this
to take the survey (it is anonymous), and takes less than 2 minutes
If you are not a lawyer,
please share this with someone who is.
