Legal Job Availability by city/market

Postby pepsi » Fri Feb 05, 2010 7:50 pm

Does anyone know of a Web site with information about the number of legal-related jobs available in different cities/markets? I have heard that NY, Chicago and LA are the cities with the most legal jobs, but where can I find information about employment options in other cities?

I want to compare various schools by the number of legal jobs available in those cities.

such a study would be nearly impossible. first, the "public" job market (listed on websites, monster.com, etc) is ever changing. new positions pop up and old positions are filled each day. second, there is the "secret" job market which is actually where most hiring is done. that market revolves around connections, referrals, and networking.

the best approximate proxy would be to use this site:

--LinkRemoved--

you can do searches by city to get a feel for the number of firms in each place, and the size of those firms.

for example:

Boston - 44
San Diego - 20
Los Angeles - 88
San Francisco - 65
