The professional and technical services sector saw significant job gains in July, amid continued growth in overall U.S. employment. At the same time, job growth in the legal services segment of the professional employment market remained stagnant, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ monthly report on the nation’s employment situation found that the legal services industry, which includes lawyers, paralegals, legal secretaries and other law-related professions, gained 100 jobs in July for a total of 1,144,200. This was by far the smallest gain in the professional and technical services sector, where only one industry, specialized design services, reported losing jobs.
