Looking for a safe bet in the job market? Seems like legal jobs may be the way to go. According to the latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the legal job sector added 2,500 new positions. This continues a three-month streak in which more people gained legal jobs than lost them.
While legal jobs have been on the rise since July, they remain in stark contrast to the most of the lagging U.S. economy. The BLS reported 95,000 jobs lost in September alone, 159,000 of those from government positions.
