With 2021 coming to a close, legal professionals everywhere are looking ahead to which practice areas could see the most demand in 2022 and beyond. “Everywhere” includes on Reddit, where one user recently asked fellow legal professionals which types of lawyers are likely to be the most sought-after in 2025.

Reddit user u/TheGermanGhost posed the question on Saturday evening in the r/Lawyertalk subreddit. The thread started a conversation with dozens of attorneys and legal professionals sharing their opinions about where the industry will be three years from now.
