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?
