Female lawyers working in-house are paid significantly less than men, a global report has revealed.

Figures from the Association of Corporate Counsel show that 69% of women in-house lawyers earn under $200,000, weighted according to purchasing power, compared with 56% of men. The gap is larger for women from under-represented or minority groups, where 71% earn under $200,000 compared with 51% of men.

The report also found that most in-house lawyers have dealt with greater challenges in the past year.
