How to Find Employment Data for Small Law?

Postby jwinaz » Fri Feb 01, 2013 9:32 pm

How do you guys find employment data - stuff like salaries and number of workers per firm ,etc. - for small law?

I've seen people paste data for biglaw a lot, but what about small law sources? Anyone know of any? Thank you very much.

You probably don't find this data, not in the form you're hoping. Something fairly laborious you could try is going to martindale.com, searching law firms in a given area by size, and looking at what you find. It's not going to have salary information, but you can find a little more info about number of employees and practice area. Not super useful, but I don't know of anything else.

I meant it sincerely. Sometimes I think I don't express myself too well.

lol. I didn't take it that way. Was just taking the literal/common sense reading that small law is just really hard to track and get statistical data for. No worries.

I wish we did have very detailed and comprehensive data for it though. Feels like a bit of a blackhole out there for law. That and the unreported jobs/salaries of law grads.

Thanks anyways folks. :)
