Lawyers who speak more than one language are at an advantage in the job search, according to a survey by Robert Half Legal.
Thirty-six percent of the 300 attorneys polled say they are seeing an increased need for counsel who are multilingual. Spanish and Chinese are the languages in greatest demand.
The respondents are lawyers at the largest law firms and corporations in the United States and Canada. All the respondents have at least three years of experience in the legal field.
