Outlook

Employment for lawyers is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, which predicts that “demand for legal work will continue as individuals, businesses, and all levels of government will need legal services in many areas.” Demand for family lawyers should continue to increase as the number of people seeking divorces and annulments remains relatively steady; children unfortunately continue to be abused and neglected; an increasing number of people seek legal assistance with adoptions and reproductive issues; more people seek prenuptial agreements; and demand in other areas (elder law, criminal law, etc.) continues to grow. Family lawyers with considerable experience, excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and specialized training in family law will have the best job prospects.
