A month after gaining a paltry 300 jobs and two months after losing 900, the legal industry rebounded in November, adding 2,900 positions, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ November jobs report. There are currently 1,151,900 people employed in the industry. 

The overall U.S. job market rebounded from last month’s lower than expected growth of 128,000 jobs and September’s 136,000 additions to add a robust 266,000 jobs in November, more than the previous two months combined.
