New Resources for Lawyer-Job Hunters

Today's mainstream news publications brought stories about two different online tools for lawyers seeking law firm jobs.  A Wall Street Journal blurb mentions Lateral Link, which combines an online job database with a traditional recruiting service.  On the surface, Lateral Link works similarly to any job database -- users enter search information and receive information about job matches.  But Lateral Link is different in that access to postings is limited to graduates of top-tier law schools with a minimum of two years of work experience.  And because Lateral Link gathers information more efficiently through an online interface, it passes cost savings on to job hunter by offering  a $10,000 bonus to members who land positions at law firms.

Meanwhile, the Chicago Tribune reports on Legal Intelligence LLC, a new venture launched by former Jenner & Block attorney and multi-tasking entrepreneur, Jennifer Sara Levin. Legal Intelligence LLC will help law students find the law firm that fits them best, partly through online video conferences.  Law firms pay to participate in order to find graduates who are both qualified and, more importantly, fit the law firm's culture.
