The U.S. legal industry gained 600 jobs in November amid a period of job growth in the overall American economy, the U.S. Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday.
The monthly BLS report on the employment situation in the U.S. showed that 1,128,700 people were employed in November in the legal services sector, which includes lawyers, legal secretaries, paralegals and other law-related jobs. Those figures, which are preliminary and could be revised, were released alongside a provisional report from BLS that the broader U.S. economy gained 228,000 nonfarm jobs in November, while the nation’s unemployment rate remained unchanged at 4.1 percent.
