The latest employment figures released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that the legal sector lost 200 jobs in February. This marks the second month in a row that the legal sector has lost jobs (in January, the BLS initially reported a loss of 1,200 jobs which it later revised to 1,100 jobs lost). This is despite an otherwise robust employment picture that saw more than 310,000 jobs added to the economy generally. Law.com also has a summary of the story here too.
