Greg Mankiw provides a graph of the salaries of newly minted lawyers, originally from Empirical Legal Studies.
There are two peaks, one centered at about $45,000 and one centered at about $145,000. The higher peak corresponds to people working for Big Law Firms; the lower to people working for nonprofits, the government, etc.
The median is reported at $62,000, just to the right of the first peak, since the first peak contains slightly more people. But one gets the impression that if a few more people were to shift from the left peak to the right peak, the median would jump drastically upwards. We usually hear that it's better to look at the median than the mean when looking at distributions of incomes, house prices, etc. because these distributions are heavily skewed towards the right. But even that starts to break down when the distribution is bimodal.
