100 legal jobs added in November

Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a slight uptick in legal employment

Growth is often a positive thing, although sometimes that growth is so miniscule that it’s hardly noticeable. Such may be said about the number of jobs gained in the legal sector last month.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ preliminary employment report, which was released last Friday, the legal sector added a staggering 100 jobs in November. While better than losing 100 jobs, the figure is a 300 job decrease from the 400 jobs added in October, according to the BLS’ seasonally adjusted numbers.
