“In-house attorneys in Minnesota are happy”

Good news — more jobs for corporate paralegals (at least in Minnesota!):

"A new survey found that 95 percent of in-house attorneys in Minnesota are satisfied with their jobs.

"The highest paid in-house lawyers worked for health care companies, and attorneys in public companies were better paid than those in private corporations. The average salary for all in-house lawyers responding to the survey was $165,289; for chief legal counsels or general counsels, the average salary was $213,173.


"The survey suggested there will be future demand for paralegals [PDF link] and in-house junior-level attorneys, because many companies are shifting away from hiring senior attorneys and general counsels."
