Glad to be in the Canadian legal services industry

Friday's are for number crunching. A fast browse through the Layoff Tracker at Law Shucks paints a pretty dismal picture for those in the US (and some UK) legal services industry. These are the reported numbers - there are probably more layoffs that are not quite so public.


staff lawyers month totals
31-Jan-09 846 694 1540
28-Feb-09 1604 1084 2688
6-Mar-09 809 371 1180
YTD 3259 2149

My heartfelt best wishes go out to all those in the breadline.
