Times have changed since the first edition of Recruiting Lawyers was published. In 2000, lawyer employment was high and law firm profits were even higher. But today's legal market presents a new climate. Law firms have slashed their staffing, fewer lawyers are heading into private practice, and there are more applicants than jobs in the legal industry. How does a law firm leader face this current environment and hire the best staff to ensure a successful firm?

These strategies include:
- Evaluating workforce needs
- Formulating selection criteria
