DPP banjoed.

By johnboy - 3 December 2008 5

The Canberra Times brings word on the neglect of the Director of Public Prosecutions, a crucial leg of the justice system.

    “Mr Drumgold said a trial lawyer in the ACT was paid less than half the salary of those doing the same job in NSW or Victoria.

    ”A Crown Prosecutor here standing with the wig on, arguing a case, is potentially getting paid less than the person sitting at the end of the bar table in NSW instructing their Crown prosecutor.”

    Publicly available figures show that, while a senior Crown prosecutor in NSW or Victoria can earn more than $374,000 a year, the maximum an ACT prosecutor can earn is just under $105,000.”

Peanuts, monkeys, etc.

With the talent they have in there and the results they get they are probably on appropriate salaries.

Harsh! But if you pay peanuts…

Yup, a couple of my kids friends after finishing law at ANU / UC simply used the ACT DPP as a springboard into the bigger action in Melbourne, Commonwealth DPP etc which they missed out on the first time around. It’s essentially a temp-job-shop for young lawyers wanting to get into something else.

For someone with the necessary training, experience and skills, that’s really pathetic $$.
