The legal services sector lost 1,200 jobs in April, the steepest one-month dip in employment numbers in five months, according to the U.S. Labor Department’s latest monthly report. There were still 700 more jobs in April compared to the same time last year, but the total number of legal jobs – 1,136,400 – is well below the 10-year high of 1,180,000 set in May 2007, the Wall Street Journal Law Blog reports.
