Part One of “The State of the e-Discovery and Data Privacy Job Market: Pre and Post COVID-19” drew attention to overarching patterns across all legal technology disciplines including an undeniable pause in hiring domestically in much of late March and April followed by an almost instantaneous shift in staffing modality from add-to-staff direct hire to as-needed replacement contract hiring. Most importantly, the pandemic has given corporations, law firms, and the alternative legal service providers (ALSPS) that service them opportunity to recalibrate internal staff, right-size, and begin to adjust human capital strategy to profit in the post-pandemic economy. For data privacy and protection professionals, see Part One for a deep dive into the privacy job market; but, take note of what is happening in the e-discovery job market as this community’s maturation may reflect a potential future state for the data privacy community.
