May was a down month for the legal job market, and it turns out April wasn’t a good month either.
The BLS originally reported that April was a good month, with the legal market adding 1,500 jobs. But revised figures now show a loss of 700 jobs for the month.
Overall, the legal industry had 1,110,400 jobs in May compared to 1,113,100 jobs at the same time last year, a loss of 2,700 positions in the past year.
