The legal job market in Minnesota seems to be getting tighter, as job ads in the state bar publication Bench & Bar are down 50 percent.

Eric Caugh, the hiring partner at Zelle Hofmann in Minneapolis, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the economy’s downturn has resulted in a barrage of resumes from experienced associates.

“We are seeing a markedly increased level of lateral candidates, many with exceptional credentials and big-firm experience that we do not see as frequently when the economy is doing better,” Caugh said in an email.
But while the job market seems to be shrinking in the state, the University of Minnesota law school reports a 20 percent boost in applications. “People don’t have jobs, so they go back to school,” explained admissions director Julie Tigges.
