The legal sector saw its employment numbers drop by 3,900 in June, according to the latest information released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Last month's BLS report initially indicated an increase of 300 jobs in legal services in May, but now the adjusted numbers point to a loss of 600 jobs that month. The new May figure, coupled with the massive drop reported Friday, highlights how tight the legal job market has been -- the sector has lost 22,200 jobs since this time a year ago.
