Supplementary notes

*The term ‘solicitors’ refers to solicitors with a practicing certificate for the period 2017-2018.

Figures have been rounded.

Data for Victoria was based on number of solicitor roles, rather than on number of individual solicitors. Data for Tasmania did not include data on government solicitors (missing data). This may therefore result in an underrepresentation of government solicitors.
