Hiring for Your Legal Office? Consider Video Interviewing.

Recruiting Lawyers with Video Interview Software

Find and hire highly-qualified candidates for legal positions

Law is a wide-ranging sector that employs all kinds of professionals including lawyers, paralegals, solicitors, barristers, law clerks, arbitrators, notaries, legal assistants and more.

Law recruitment varies considerably depending on whether you’re hiring for positions in court or in law firms, as well as the size of your firm. Boutique law firms, for example, don’t always have the same needs as international heavy hitters.

Hiring needs also vary depending on law specialization:

  • Litigation
  • Criminal law
  • Business and corporate law
  • Intellectual property law
  • Labor law
  • Environmental law
  • Cybersecurity and information law
  • International law
  • Family law
  • Real estate

Extending Your Legal Team

The fluctuating nature of legal caseloads means it’s important to identify a pool of talent before hiring needs arises. What talent does your firm anticipate needing in the next six, 12, 18, and 24 months? Start recruiting well in advance of the actual need. You may want to consider alternatives to traditional full-time staff, such as hiring contract lawyers or law students as interns.

Challenges When Recruiting Lawyers

Without the right hires, your law firm or corporation can lose credibility with clients and the public. Unhappy clients may even file a grievance to the bar. Too much is at stake to shortchange hiring efforts, yet it’s often very difficult to find the right people for the job.
