              Build a legal career in one of the hottest 21st century employment arenas! In his 21st Century Legal Career Series, Richard L. Hermann researches, evaluates, and predicts where the employment opportunities are and will be for law graduates. Volume 7, The Administrative Law Revolu...tion: Learning to Litigate in a Forgiving Environment, focuses one of the hottest law practice areas going, which is heating up even more, due to two demographic phenomena hitting the U.S. at the same time: (1) Age. 78 million Baby Boomers are aging up at a rate of 10,000 per day. Older people wind up in administrative litigation forums to a far greater extent than their younger counterparts. (2) Veterans. The U.S. now has 26 million veterans. More than 8 million Vietnam Era veterans are now in their 60s and 70s and are applying for disability benefits in large numbers. More than 50 percent of the 2.6 million Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans are filing disability claims with the Department of Veterans Affairs' Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA). That is a lot of potential new clients coming on scene daily. This booklet explores the Big Four -Social Security Disability Income cases, Medicare appeals, Veterans appeals, Workers' Compensation cases - and the resulting opportunities for a successful administrative litigation practice. Highlights include: Why Is Administrative Litigation So Hot? Types of Administrative Forums Who Hires? The Highest-Volume Administrative Litigation Forums Breaking into Administrative Litigation Finding Out About Administrative Litigation Jobs Before Everyone Else Follow-Up: The Benefits of an Administrative Litigation Practice More attorneys appear before administrative tribunals in the U.S. than ever see the inside of a trial or appellate courtroom. There, they have the opportunity to litigate, but in a more orderly, structured, predictable, and far less stressful environment than in court. Administrative litigators can earn a nice living exclusively trying cases in

              Build a legal career in one of the hottest 21st century employment arenas! In his 21st Century Legal Career Series, Richard L. Hermann researches, evaluates, and predicts where the employment opportunities are and will be for law graduates. Volume 6, Risk Management: The Indispen...sable Profession, describes the rise of risk management and the wide-ranging and ever-increasing opportunities this presents for attorneys seeking a rewarding career outside of mainstream law, one that is not going away and that pays well and is as secure as any profession extant today. The demand for risk managers is prompted by a barrage of congressional and state legislation and regulations, especially in the 21st century, as well as the increase in the threat level experienced by companies. Add to the mix the creative diversity and expanding existential nature of these threats and the result is risk management has become a core organizational function throughout the private and nonprofit worlds. Highlights include: Why Are Attorneys in Demand? Why Is Risk Management So Hot? The Work: What Do Risk Managers Do? Who Hires? Selected Risk Management Job Titles Career Progression What Does It Pay? Breaking into Risk Management Advance Notice of Risk Management Opportunities Follow-Up Over the past two decades since risk management became a hot profession, employers have come to value a legal education. The principal reason why risk management favors a legal education or background is because attorneys are trained and/or experienced in evaluating and mitigating risk. A second reason is that, like attorneys, risk managers have to be quick studies and become knowledgeable about a large number of issues. Hermann focuses on what law students and lawyers need to know to break into this hot employment field.

              Build a legal career in the hottest 21st century practice areas! In his 21st Century Legal Career Series, Richard L. Hermann researches, evaluates, and predicts where the employment opportunities are and will be for law graduates. Volume 8, Digital Assets Practice: Three New Prac...tice Opportunities in One, explores how technology has generated a ground-floor opportunity for attorneys. Until very recently, the vast storehouse of individual and corporate digital assets were not included in people's estate plans. Today it is far and away the hottest topic in estate planning. Business owners and individuals must now be concerned with what will happen to their digital assets once they pass from the scene. But digital assets practice does not end with estate planning and how executors and administrators deal with such assets. In addition to estate planning, this booklet examines: digital assets practice with respect to small businesses, especially succession planning; and digital assets practice with respect to mergers and acquisitions. Highlights include: -What is a Digital Asset? -Digital Assets Practice-- Estate Planning & Fiduciary Considerations -Digital Assets Practice--Business Succession Planning -Digital Assets Practice--Mergers and Acquisitions -Why Is Digital Assets Practice So Hot? -Who Hires? -Breaking into Digital Assets Practice -Finding Out About Digital Assets Law Jobs Before Everyone Else -Where to Go for More Information What makes Digital Assets practice a ground-floor opportunity? Individuals and small business owners thinking about succession matters have amassed vast repositories of digital assets worthy of protection. Few in the potential client pool are cognizant of the fact that they possess digital assets worth passing on to spouses or the next generation. Digital asset protection will be an ever more major issue for everyone as time passes .Very few lawyers are even aware of the practice opportunities in this area. Hermann focuses on what law st

              Build a legal career in one of the hottest 21st century employment arenas! In his 21st Century Legal Career Series, Richard L. Hermann researches, evaluates, and predicts where the employment opportunities are and will be for law graduates. Volume 12, JD Advantage Jobs in Corpora...tions: Expanding the Legal Function, examines in detail the impressive range and growing diversity of JD Advantage jobs in corporations open to individuals with a law degree. As a rule, corporations do not hire new graduates for their in-house counsel offices. Instead, they favor lateral candidates with a few years of experience. What few law students realize is this should not deter them from including corporations in their job-search strategy. Since the late 1970s, U.S. companies have embarked on an expansion of their legal hiring to include thousands of attorneys who work in JD Advantage positions in corporate offices and roles other than their traditional, mainstream legal office(s). Volume 12 focuses on the corporate departments that hire a substantial number of law grads for JD Advantage positions including: Compliance, Due Diligence, Ethics, Risk Management, Technology Commercialization, Real Estate. Highlights include: -Why Are Corporate JD Advantage Jobs So Hot? -Selected JD Advantage Job Titles and Work Environments -A Look at JD Advantage-Heavy Industries -Positioning Yourself for a Corporate JD Advantage Job -What Do Corporate JD Advantage Jobs Pay? -Advance Notice of Corporate JD Advantage Opportunities -A Word About Nonprofit Corporations The demand for JD Advantage lawyers in U.S. corporations is escalating because of: Complexity. The world is not becoming simpler to understand and negotiate. Globalization. Interconnectedness across borders is the new normal. Technology. Innovation and its frequent consequence, creative destruction, are increasing. Turmoil. Uncertainty and unpredictability have rocked the corporate comfort zone. Track Record.

Hermann researches, evaluates, and predicts where the employment opportunities are and will be for law graduates. Volume 17, Elder Law: Riding the Age Wav...e, spotlights a practice area often overlooked or deemed slow-moving and stodgy by legal career seekers. Not anymore. That all changed on January 1, 2011, when the first Baby Boomer turned 65. Baby Boom demographics are unprecedented. Beginning in 2011 and not ending until 2029, 80 million have, are, and will turn 65 at the rate of 10,000 a day every day. That's a lot of potential clients. This most populous and prosperous generation ever is now confronting both the health and financial issues attendant upon age. And demand for elder law advice and legal services is not exclusive to seniors. The potential client pool also includes millions of Generation Xers and Millennials concerned about their senior relatives' financial, care giving, quality of life, and succession issues. Elder Law focuses on the growing epidemic of financial fraud targeting older Americans, which costs seniors an estimated $2.9 billion annually. Elder financial abuse is where financial services meet social services. It is also where legal practitioners can hop on board an emerging, highly remunerative practice area that is creating legal and JD-Advantage jobs throughout the nation. Highlights include: -Defining Elder Law -The Astonishing Numbers -Elder Financial Abuse: the fastest-growing and most monetizable practice subspecialty -Why Is Elder Law Hot? -Where the Jobs Are -JD-Advantage Job Opportunities -Positioning Yourself for an Elder Law Job -Compensation -Advance Notice of Elder Law Job Opportunities -The Future Despite the ravages of the Great Recession, Boomers are aging up blessed with more wealth than any other generation in history.

Hermann researches, evaluates, and predicts where the employment opportunities are and will be for law graduates. Volume 2, Careers in Compliance: JDs Wa...nted, focuses on what the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) calls one of the fastest growing occupations. The number of compliance officers nationwide has more than doubled in the last six years to around 300,000. A barrage of new laws, such as the Affordable Care Act and the Dodd-Frank Act, and their implementing regulations (Dodd-Frank alone has spawned almost 400), heightened government enforcement, large fines, and other penalties have acted as a compliance wake-up call to affected companies and industries. New laws and more vigorous government enforcement have also upgraded the nature of the job. As part of compliance, companies now emphasize risk assessments, ethics, employee training, and developing paths for employees to report possible misconduct. A growing number of compliance officers come to the job armed with a law degree. This booklet shows you where these jobs are and how to take advantage of this exciting career opportunity. Highlights include: -What is Compliance ? -The Work -Organizing the Compliance Function -Who Hires? -JD-Advantage Compliance Jobs and Careers -What Does It Pay? -Breaking into Compliance -Follow Up While ever-present, compliance has become considerably more important and central to the activities of most organizations in the 21st century. America's 6,000 publicly-traded companies find that, since the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in 2002, it has become impossible to function without a compliance staff. There has even been a trickle-over effect to closely-held corporations and nonprofits including hospitals, academic institutions, museums, and foundations. Prior compliance experience is not always necessary, due to intense demand. The new complia

Hermann researches, evaluates, and predicts where the employment opportunities are and will be for law graduates. Volume 11, Insurance Careers for Attorn...eys: Opportunity in Expected-and Unexpected-Places, shines a spotlight on a rich environment for law jobs. To say that insurance is booming is a decided understatement. The insurance industry is doing very well and continues to thrive regardless of the ups and downs of the global and national economies. A direct consequence of this is that both mainstream and JD Advantage insurance jobs for attorneys are proliferating. In fact, the demand for attorneys to fill these latter positions is high and becoming more intense, as employers discover that JDs who serve in these capacities bring both a strong skill set and dogged work ethic, as well as excellent judgment to their jobs. This is, in part, due to the aging of the population-in America, more than 10,000 Baby Boomers turn 65 every day and will continue to do so at this incredible rate until 2029! That kind of unprecedented demographic explosion puts a great deal of pressure on insurers. The number of claims skyrockets. More people go on disability. More people die. Insurance Careers for Attorneys details how to find the right employment opportunity in the vibrant world of insurance. Highlights include: -Why is Insurance Law Hot? -Who Hires? Insurance Companies -Who Hires? The Public Sector -Who Hires? Law Firms -Who Hires? Nonprofits -The Work: What Do Insurance Lawyers Do? -Selected JD Advantage Job Titles -Positioning Yourself for an Insurance Law Career -What Does It Pay? -Advance Notice of Insurance Law Opportunities Most mainstream legal jobs in insurance companies are in the corporate in-house counsel office.

Volume 10, Law Teaching and Training: L...aw School and Way Beyond, debunks the conventional wisdom that there are no jobs for law teachers. To be sure U.S. law schools are a mature industry and not a great place these days to be looking for teaching positions. But that does not mean law teaching jobs are static or disappearing. Quite the contrary. Law schools may not be where the action is, but that does not mean there isn't a lot of action elsewhere. There are far more law teaching positions available outside of law schools than within. Attorneys now teach law courses in undergraduate institutions, graduate departments, paralegal schools, foreign universities, government, corporations and even law firms. For example, more than 500 undergraduate institutions offer a Legal Studies or comparable major. The individuals who teach in these programs are attorneys. Discover the breadth and depth of opportunities for law graduates who want to teach. Highlights include: -Why Is Law Teaching and Training So Hot? -Who Hires?
