Slaughter and May published its gender pay gap statistics today, revealing a median hourly pay gap of 38.5%, and bonus pay gap of 54.8%. Like other law firms, this global figure is partly as a result of structural differences at firms, namely that there are many more women in lower-paid roles, particularly secretarial roles which are “all-female” at the firm. The mean hourly gender and bonus pay gaps for Slaughter and May are 14.3% and 33.3% respectively.
As Edinburgh Law School defends itself against accusations it had tried to ‘break’ the strikeTort law’s most famous case has made an appearance during a strike by academics in response to detrimental changes to their pensions. The celebrated precedent involving a woman who became ill after drinking ginger beer from a bottle with a snail at the bottom of it has now become a poster-sensation in a battle between universities and the University and College Union (UCU).
Salaries are the highest when compared with other sectorsAdvertised apprenticeship roles in the legal sector attract the highest pay out of all industries with an average salary of £23,904, according to new research. However, there are very few of them up for grabs when compared to other sectors. Just shy of £24,000 may sound low in a world where trainees earn £40,000 and beyond. But high salaries tend to be focused in the City and many regional trainees might be earning around the £25,000 mark.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
