July 2013 featured a 2,800-worker gain over June, subject to the usual wholesale revision up or down. Year-over-year was a little better than flat.
Three-year growth was around 16,000. It would have been a lot larger but for the massive earnings potential of a JD luring holders away from law and into even more lucrative endeavors, making recruiting difficult. I'll get to Simkovic's paper eventually. In the interim, I encourage the terminally credulous to enroll somewhere, anywhere this fall. Remember the ABA motto, "It's a mistake to retake."
