While Short-term Surveys Suggest Otherwise, LawCrossing Jobs Data Shows Growth in Law Jobs Following Long Term Projections by the Government
Pasadena, CA, – According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, legal jobs and openings are expected to grow at an average rate of 10.1 percent from 2010 through 2020 an increase corroborated by the recent growth in legal openings on the job site LawCrossing.com. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that number of law job openings due to growth and replacement needs would lead to about 212, 000 law jobs being added to the industry over a decade. And that means an average of 20, 000-21,000 new jobs every year.
At that rate, the growth rate for the occupation of lawyers would be around 10 percent, which is far more than what is shown by many recent surveys by private organizations. However, the number of law job openings posted on LawCrossing reflects that the government projection of the lawyer occupation is holding steady despite occasional flat periods or growth surges.
