10 Things That Most Legal Recruiters Will Not Tell You

ByLaw.net from Office
Introduction

The legal recruiting industry is unique. With the goals of placing attorneys in new positions and, most importantly, helping attorneys' careers progress by finding the appropriate match, there is an important responsibility that falls on the shoulders of legal recruiters. However, unlike the practice of law, the legal recruiting industry is not regulated by the states. No licenses are needed. Therefore, anybody who wishes to become a legal recruiter (whether a former car salesperson, captain of a cruise liner, or an exotic dancer with good people skills) can easily hang out a shingle and call him/herself a recruiter. No licenses, tests, or ethical-fitness qualifications are necessary. "Not an attorney, and you have no knowledge of the legal market? No problem!"
