Labor Department Shows that Legal Services Slightly on the Rise

We weren’t hoping for anything drastic, and we weren’t disappointed: of the 4,900 Professional and technical services jobs, 4,900 were added, according the latest from the Labor Department. That’s not huge despite the sway the economy has been taking, with U.S. unemployment falling from 8.1 in August to 7.8 percent in September, and of those jobs, 2,900 concerned accounting and bookkeeping and computer system design — heavy hitters compared to the legal sector which added 1,000 jobs in December.

1,000 jobs isn’t epic, but it’s at least in the right direction. We are up 5,900 jobs since September 2011, making for a total of about 1.13 million jobs.

Some of the biggest losers in jobs include local government, the postal service, accommodation, sporting good and books, and similar jobs suggesting that luxuries are still being cut back as well as government.

Entering the legal profession still isn’t the shrewdest choice to make economically, nowhere near as financially certain as a decade ago, but with those whose hearts are set on rendering legal serves, there is a gleam of hope, and it is safe to assume that this modest improvement is set to continue as we slowly trudge our way out of the recession.
