Legal employment on the rise

April was a turnaround month for the nation’s legal industry. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment grew by 1,500 jobs after two straight months of decline.

This good news for the legal sector comes after the industry lost 300 jobs in March and 2,000 in February, the website AmLaw Daily reports. Employment has increased by 1,500 positions compared to one year ago.

Still, with this month’s law school graduations under way, the broader employment outlook for these folks is bleak. See this article in The New Republic, wherein University of Colorado law professor Paul Campos said the jobs picture is far more dismal than most law schools let on to students.

Who really drives job growth

Turns out it's young companies, not small businesses, that are the economy's greatest job creators. The Curious Capitalist has a brief post, at this link, that explains census data from 1992 to 2005 show that start-ups drive the job effect normally attributed to small companies.

The caveat:

Start-ups haven't been pulling their weight during the most recent economic recovery. The likely reason? This recession wasn't just about slack demand, but also about a massive credit crunch. That particularly hurt young companies, the sort often financed by credit card and home-equity loan. It may also be part of the reason jobs have been so slow to return.
