Finns det ett samband mellan self-efficacy, kön och löneanspråk hos juriststudenter?
Sammanfattning: The unexplained gender wage gap has long been a topic of interest for researchers and policymakers, but also in the public debate. Previous research has attempted to explain the wage gap with different variables, such as negotiation strategies, starting salaries, and pay expectations. This study has extended previous research by an examination of the role of self-efficacy in salary requirements. Furthermore, it has examined if there existed gender differences in salary requirements and whether this could be explained by differences in self-efficacy. Quantitative data were used from a cross-sectional digital survey answered by 67 law students at Lund University. The study showed a significant positive correlation between self-efficacy and salary requirements. However, the data showed no significant gender difference in self-efficacy or required salary. Based on the results it was concluded that self-efficacy plays an important role in salary requirements but more research on the gender wage gap is needed for further conclusions.
