The legal sector rebounded from some of its recent employment woes last month by adding 3,900 jobs, according to preliminary data released Friday by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Revised data released by the bureau at the same time showed that those gains came on the heels of the legal sector losing 1,700 jobs in March -- 400 more than originally estimated. Factoring in last month's increase, the legal sector's total number currently stands at 1,120,900 -- the industry's highest total since June 2009 and 6,900 jobs ahead of last year's total through April.
