Men in Legal Occupations Earn 95.6% More Than Women

It's a wonder the women don't sue!

The Census Bureau reports that men in legal occupations earned a median salary 95.6% higher than their women counterparts -- $105,233 v. $53,790. (Hat Tip: ABA Journal.)

I wonder how much of this is due to differences in lifestyle choices men and women tend to make? (Men are typically more willing to give up quality of life for higher income, women vice-versa.)

Highly-paid attorneys are not well known for the exceptional quality of work-life balance.
