Maryland Lawyers and the Recession

Above the Law reports today that 125 major law firms have announced or had confirmed layoffs. The combined number of layoffs 10,723 people, 4,015 of which are lawyers.

It would be great if the Maryland Daily Record tried to put something together for Maryland, not just for big law firms but for the entire state of Maryland. I’m not sure how you find this information but, hey, I’m not a reporter. My guess: Maryland lawyers have not been as severely impacted as the rest of the country.
