Legal Jobs in California
According to the Labor Market Information Division, the expected growth of legal opportunities in California between 1995 and 2005 was about 30%, with projected numbers of the state's employees at the period of growing from 56,030 in 1995 to 74,440. By 2005, there were more than 10,500 openings because of separations. More legal openings were available during this period due to new law firms and attorney jobs starting in the government sector and other firms, and the opportunity for other new legal jobs in the state based on the market growth and rehabilitated needs for various types of state's lawyers.

Unspecified in the above mentioned figures are self-employment factors and job openings as a consequence of the labor turnover. Many lawyers are working as independent contractors or in private firms that are involved in serving law services. Places where many lawyer opportunities exist are in big cities, mainly San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and other counties that have large populations. Opportunities are spiraling as the market is so extensive with more legal needs.

Unquestionably, the level of competition is very intense for associate positions in the most prominent and larger firms, usually found in big state's cities. As a result, law school graduates will have the best fortune at getting legal jobs in the larger firms in the city. Graduates can considerably escalate their employment opportunity within these prominent firms by selecting to attain legal research knowledge and experience by internship before graduation.

Wages differ considerably with the law firm's size and overall reputation, as well as the location, the type of practice and the type of clients that a professional is dealing with. These legal openings in California can easily be obtained. Remuneration for these jobs begins between $60,000 and $90,000 annually in the government agencies, mainly in small cities throughout the state. Firms in big cities pay more. In bigger cities of California, some lawyers offer a salary between $100,000 and $400,000 per annum to partners and individuals of the law firm who work as employees.
