The United States economy may be showing signs of improvement, but in at least one way the legal sector is not enjoying the fruits of that recovery: the industry shed 2.900 jobs in February, according to the monthly employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The latest BLS report is a harsh dose of reality, given that the adjusted January numbers that it contains show that the legal industry actually gained 500 jobs that month — a modest boost that pales next the job losses of both November (-900) and December (-1600).
