The U.S. legal industry added 4,800 jobs in June as the country’s overall economy continued an uninterrupted streak of monthly job growth, according to U.S. Labor Department data released Friday.
The agency’s Bureau of Labor Statistics issued its monthly look at the employment situation in the United States, showing a rebound in the legal services sector after more tepid results in May. BLS reported that 1,141,400 people were employed in legal services in June, a figure that includes lawyers, paralegals, legal secretaries and other law-related professions. The jobs data released Friday is seasonally adjusted and provisional, meaning it could be revised later.
