The new study from Robert Half legal predicts that business, healthcare and litigation will be the practice areas offering the most jobs this year

Navigating the legal jobs market can be daunting, but attorneys with business law experience may be in luck, according to a new survey from Robert Half Legal.

Of the 200 law firm and corporate attorneys surveyed, 19 percent predicted that business and commercial law will be the practice area that offers the most job opportunities in 2013, second only to litigation (22%). Healthcare law also came in at 19 percent; no other practice area—including labor and employment, bankruptcy and intellectual property law—came in above 8 percent.
