The Recession still Looms for Lawyers

According to the majority of poll takers in our latest poll, the recession is not over--fifty percent of respondents have lost their job and remain unemployed. An additional 33% of respondents have somewhat recovered: they have found employment, but their new job is not as good as their last job.

Unfortunately, the poll demonstrates, to a certain extent (at least in the NY legal market), many people have not recovered from the recession. The Am Law Daily confirms that the law profession continues to be financially rattled in a recent article entitled "Legal Sector Loses 5,800 Jobs in October" see the link below for the entire article.
