    Yes that is a good news, after slow down again lawyers demand are improving. As a lawyer I am happy to read this article. Not only this as per few studies there will be huge shortage of lawyers in future. I hope USA economy will be improved very soon. The New York Times report says "Overall, the U.S. economy added a better-than-expected 236,000 jobs in February"
