Legal sector employment grew by about a third of a percent in August, according to the latest U.S. government jobs report, adding around 4,100 additional jobs after a three-month stretch of little to no growth.

The legal industry, composed of attorneys, paralegals, legal secretaries and others, employed 1,148,100 people in August, according to seasonally adjusted figures released Friday by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The figure has varied by just a few thousand in recent years, and has still failed to catch up to pre-Great Recession numbers.
