US legal sector adds 1,100 jobs in November

December 10, 2013 The US legal services sector shed 1,100 jobs in November, representing the second consecutive month of labor market contraction after a mostly steady period of recovery.

The U.S. Labor Department’s latest monthly report shows the total number of legal jobs to be 1,128,600, which is 51,400 jobs short of the 10-year high of 1,180,000 set in May 2007.

Despite recent contraction, 2013 has been a year of job growth in the sector, with 2,500 jobs being added over the last 12 months.
