Things are looking up…

I’ve noticed recently that the West Coast job market has gotten better in the past few months, in relation to law firm hiring.  Law firms are cautiously dipping their toes back in the associate hiring waters.  For example, I recently got a job order from a firm in LA for a junior litigation associate- and have also received job orders for mid-level corporate associates, as well.

This is a good sign.  Many firms are becoming more optimistic that the economy is improving and that there will be a need for associate hiring in areas like general corporate, litigation, and real estate law.  Keep in mind that firms are still pretty selective in regards to granting associate interviews.  Overall though, this increase in associate hiring is great news for many in our legal community.
