Legal sector employment experienced slight gains in September, adding 900 jobs over the prior month as the employment situation in the U.S. economy overall remained relatively flat, according to data released Friday by the U.S. Department of Labor.

In its monthly jobs report, the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that in September, 1,128,600 people were employed in the legal services industry, which includes lawyers, paralegals, legal secretaries and other law-related occupations. The seasonally adjusted BLS data is provisional and could be revised later.
