Legal Sector Adds 1,000 Jobs

The legal sector added 1,000 jobs law month, according to the latest figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

It was the second month of job gains in the legal field, the American Lawyer reports. The government originally reported that the legal sector lost 800 jobs in July, but a readjustment now shows a gain of 300 jobs for the month.

Despite the gain, there are still 14,000 fewer jobs in the legal sector than a year ago, the story says.
