JD doesn't mean shit. Get in line peasant

OP, I'm a JD. Is your JD relevant to your work? How many years experience before or after JD did you have. Ignore the trolls, they are just trying to be funny.

I'm a JD too...pardon my frustration, but that is the experience I've gone through.

At the end of the day, JDs prove that youre smart. Now that's something worth paying for... 👏🏽

Relevant to work, one yr unrelated small firm experience prior

Might be able to jump to senior if it's relevant. I doubt with one year of unrelated work exp you could convince someone to make you a manager. That's my non-JD-educated realistic 2 cent opinion

Any actual salary range ideas?

Why are you coming into consulting as a JD?

Maybe comparable to MBA, 135? Depends on what u enter as well.

JD's don't really mean anything. I know a few consultants with them in consulting. They are all frustrated because they aren't using them at all.

I disagree with the $135K. Probably less and associate is right. Maybe $80-90K. If you had more experience, then Senior and $135K, but you don't. You still need to train from bottom up, and no matter how relevant your degree is, it's still not MBA. My JD is more relevant than MBA, and I think it was worthwhile to start from the bottom. You'll learn more, and be better supported by the team. At another firm I was at, even MBAs came in as associates.

That's totes what I paid $200K for 🤓

EY1, is that relevant to salary? I'm interested in the subject area I'm in now, and not interested in litigation. Also much better pay and benefits than small firm and much better work life balance than big firm. So, salary range numbers anyone?

Consultant 1, there are a lot of areas where JDs are relevant. Don't generalize. The degree is relevant to Regulatory, Forensics, M&A...

The ppl frustrated with not using them shouldn't be in consulting. I'm a consultant for a reason and not a practicing lawyer for a reason.

Hey guys, reaching out for some guidance and help. Just got told, I’m being let go from my firm. I’m an associate consultant at a boutique in Toronto and pretty much the pandemic has significantly slowed down the projects in the pipeline and can’t keep me on anymore. I was wondering if there were any opportunities or people I should connect with that I could get a lead on. I’m open to relocating anywhere (including US). Also, more than happy to share my resume. Thanks guys and happy holidays!
