The U.S. economy added 1,400 legal services jobs in September, reversing a two-month downward slide in the industry’s employment figures, according to preliminary data released by the U.S. Department of Labor on Friday.

The legal industry employed 1,138,100 people in the month of September, the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in its monthly look at the employment situation in the U.S. The BLS employment data is seasonally adjusted and provisional, meaning it could be revised.
