LawCrossing.com Finds 11,000 Law Student Jobs and Entry-level Jobs for Attorneys Despite Disappointing ABA Report
April 02, 2013
Pasadena, California, April 9, 2013 —  Legal job search website LawCrossing.com has been able to gather almost 4,000 law student jobs and 7,000 entry-level jobs for attorneys.

The figure for law student jobs includes 117 judicial clerkships and 887 summer associate positions. The website has also been able to track down 7,018 attorney jobs that require less than a year of experience.

The high number of job openings for law students that LawCrossing.com has been able to track down comes in the face of a recent ABA report, which states that only 56.2 percent of the graduating class of 2012 had full time, long-term jobs that required bar passage as of February 15, 2013. According to the ABA report, even this figure was an improvement compared to last year, when only 54.9 percent of the 2011 graduates found full time, long-term jobs that required bar passage. ABA’s Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar released the report.

The job openings on LawCrossing.com also show that while the job openings have not reached their pre-recession levels, there are still thousands of jobs across the country. The site has been able to track down 2,805 law student job openings. CEO Harrison Barnes explains how the site is able to list so many law student job openings. “We keep tracking all the major and minor law firms across the country and the other organizations that employ attorneys. With summer coming up, we have doubled our efforts to make sure that wherever there is an opening for a law student, we list that law firm on our site.”

There are a total of 58,403 legal industry jobs in the U.S. on the site. 31,346 are attorney jobs and another 1,449 listings are partner opportunities. There are also 13,567 legal staff job listings.
