This chart of lawyers starting salaries is interesting. It is an extreme bimodal distribution. While the graph is a little hard to read, it seems that a large chunk of first year lawyers are making about $45k and another chunk are making about $140k. Quite a difference.
Of course, a law professor ought not to dwell too much on the salaries of his students.
Maybe the publics false assumptions could stem from the schools own publication of average salary figures. Brooklyn Law School reported an average starting salary of $110,000, which is well worth the tuition of $40k per year. Of course, incoming law students are savvy on the various schematics used in reporting these figures and understand the drastic disparity in salaries that an "average" figure will not communicate.

Of course, everyone outside of the legal field assumes that everyone starts in the $100k to $160k range and just goes up from there.
