I just saw this job ad...

35,000,000 KRW per year (plus housing) for a western lawyer with 5 years actual legal experience?

This is not a typical ESL uni job. This is for real lawyers who will be teaching law.

I know things are rough for lawyers in the states, but is it really this bad?

Sometimes recruiters/companies/schools test the waters with low ball offers to see if anyone is stupid enough to take it. If no, the ad is reposted, but with a higher salary. If one person accepts it however, that becomes the new norm and salaries go down down for all of us.

4. Teaching Loads & Semesters
- Nine credit hours per week during two (spring & fall) regular 15 week semesters.
- Eight weeks of paid vacation for each of the summer and winter breaks.


Nine hours of class with no research duties. It's a paid sabbatical.

Now planning and teaching nine hours of law courses could be demanding, but the salary offered suggests the position doesn't carry much responsibility.

There you go...sometimes it is worth looking beyond the raw pay.

I knew you'd chime in with the "if anyone accepts any wage under the norm it drives down wages for us all" spiel. Though I agree with you, you are the poster boy now for these comments.

If you agree with it then why are you bothered by it?

Real Reality posts = more pay in your pocket at the end of the day.

3DR posts = less money in your pocket.

Which would you rather have?
