The below resource was generously provided by Jeffrey Nadrich, a personal injury attorney, based in Los Angeles. He is the managing partner of the law firm, Nadrich & Cohen, LLP and a proud graduate of University of California Hastings College of the Law. Currently, Mr. Nadrich and his legal team are pursuing Round Up lymphoma lawsuits on behalf of users of the Monsanto herbicide who subsequently developed Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma after exposure to glyphosate, one of the product’s ingredients. Mr. Nadrich understands that looking for a job right out of law school can be a full-time job in itself, but his aim is to provide the below resource to aid recent law graduates.
There are 1.3 million lawyers in the United States, and that number continually grows, as tens of thousands of people graduate from law school annually. The class of 2013 was the largest class ever, with 46,776 graduates. Once these students graduate, their priority is finding a job. Even in the best economy, landing the perfect job can be challenging, especially with so many law school graduates seeking employment. Where does a recent law school graduate look for a job? Online searches for employment are an important source for legal job seekers. But anyone who’s ever looked for a job online knows that there are countless websites to choose from. One could spend their entire day perusing job ads. We did the work for you and found five excellent online resources that offer a variety of attorney positions all across the country.
