Hot Legal Jobs for 2008

Robert Half Legal, a national legal staffing agency just released its 2008 Salary Guide.  Today's press release announces the Guide and provides information that identifies the five "in-demand positions" for 2008.

Despite recent lay-offs, Robert Half remains bullish about certain positions.  The press release summarizes that competition has intensified for first-year associates from the top twenty percent of top-tier law schools, and demand is "robust" for patent attorneys.  In addition, more companies are hiring experienced lawyers for in-house positions to handle regulatory compliance, corporate and security law and commercial litigation.

Are firms still actively hiring first-years in recessionary times?  Or will they slow down so that they can avoid laying off associates down the line?
