January 31, 2011 A new survey has revealed that male lawyers in the Gulf region are earning twice as much as their female colleagues.

The survey, conducted by Elizabeth Williams Search, gathered information from 274 in-house lawyers across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). It finds that top remuneration packages for male counsel with 12-15 years’ post qualified experience in the GCC countries are set at at UAED200,000 (£34,080) per month, but female lawyers are earning less than half of that amount.

The trend continues at the junior level with female in-house counsel making up to UAED73,400 while their male counterparts earn UAED140,000.
