The October jobs figures are out, and despite meager growth since just last month, the legal sector is the largest it’s been in three years. It gained only 600 jobs in October, but what stands out is that the total number of employees in the legal sector is at its highest since July 2009, Reuters reports.

Another piece of good news is that the Department of labour revised its September number for the legal sector from a 1,000 gain to 1,300.

August was the last month that the legal services sector posted a loss — some 1,400 jobs as compared to the previous month.
