Pursuing a career in law is considered well worth a try because it pays well to be an attorney or a professor of law, besides carrying a certain amount of social dignity. The fact that more and more students get enrolled in law school programs stands testimony to the fact that there is a positive job outlook. The average annual salary of a law professor is $75,000 and it increases with experience. While law professors generally do not earn quite as much as lawyers, their work schedule is considerably less hectic and exhausting. A law professor usually teaches all core concepts of the law relating to the government and public life. They deliver lectures, facilitate classroom discussions, distribute assignments and evaluate students’ performance.
