Industry Outlook

Employment for lawyers is expected to grow by 6 percent through 2028, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH), but a growing number of law firm mergers and closures, competition from nontraditional providers of legal services, and other factors have created strong competition for top jobs. According to Robert Half Legal, a national staffing firm, “competition remains tough when recruiting attorneys with specialized litigation experience. Other hot practice areas include general business and commercial law, real estate, trusts and estates, compliance, and data privacy and information law. Among industry sectors, our recruiters report particularly strong demand for associates with technology, financial services, and energy experience.”
