Infographic Friday:  Trends Shaping the Legal Industry

by | Sep 12, 2014

legal industry trends

Recently, Robert Half Legal took a focused look at the legal profession in a new study titled Client Dynamics Driving Change in the Legal Profession. The study identifies four key legal industry trends shaping the profession which are:

  1. Client service pressures mount
  2. General counsel take center stage
  3. Mobility gives rise to the virtual law practice, flexible workplace
  4. Demand for specialization sparks talent wars

We look at a lot of legal industry studies on these pages and what’s amazing is how much overlap can be found in the research, interviews and conversations we have across the space. A review – a literature review of sorts – seems to indicate relative consensus on the key trends.

An infographic providing the data from Robert Half – which accompanies the bullets above — is posted below.  Here’s how we see the trends it identified mapping to some of the ideas and findings surfaced on this blog:
