b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_2014_July_comp.survey.jpgAssociate salaries are back on the upswing, but new lawyers may have to do more for their money in the future, judging by the results of Canadian Lawyer’s 2014 Compensation Survey.

That’s the highest level since we started compiling the survey in this format in 2010.
