Difficult time finding a law firm job? Attorney Christopher Jones sheds light on legal career opportunities

Due to economic circumstances, job hunting in the legal profession has become a difficult process. In a recent article in Louisville’s Business First, Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP attorney Christopher Jones explains how  to “get a foot in the door” of the legal community. In the article, Christopher elaborates on ways to enter the legal world, even if it’s not quite the job for which you’re looking. Christopher also informs young professionals seeking a career in the legal profession to keep up with their studies, because first year grades are crucial for locating long-term employment following law school. An excerpt from the article, published in Business First, is below.
