Legal Jobs Changing as Document Review Becomes Necessary

The landscape for legal graduates is changing dramatically, with more jobs becoming available in the digital discovery sector, according to Inside Counsel. Recent statistics from the ABA show that 57 percent of graduates from the class of 2013 were employed full-time in a job that required a law degree nine months following graduation.

With the changes in technology, many law schools are not changing their curriculum to match the industry. Law firms across the country are changing with the times, but law schools are slow to follow. This has hurt the industry and it has helped the industry all at the same time.

Many experts believe that law schools should begin to train students using a residency-style program like medical school students in order to make sure they are up-to-date with the changing technology.

There are thousands of document review jobs within the legal sector today because firms need to review emails, online communications and much more. Experts believe that technology will take away some legal jobs, but will also create new ones we have never seen before.
