US Legal Sector Sees Third Month of Job Losses

June 7, 2008 The U.S. legal service sector lost 1,100 jobs in May, according to U.S. Department of Labor statistics released Friday.

Layoffs at large firms, along with tightening throughout the market generally, contributed to the lost jobs last month. Among the largest firms to shrink their payrolls was Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, which cut 124 lawyer and administrative positions.
