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.

              Build a legal career in one of the hottest 21st century employment fields! 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 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

              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

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.

              Build a legal career in one of the hottest 21st century employment 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 9, The Education Sector: Overwhel...med by the Law, demonstrates how the tectonic shifts American education is experiencing bode very well for legal employment. Due to a variety of factors including, technology, dissatisfaction with dismal academic results, runaway tuition costs, and regulatory complexity, education is undergoing creative destruction that is throwing over old ways of doing things while creating new opportunities in both mainstream legal venues and JD Advantage realms. Look for continuing increases in attorney involvement at the K-12 level as the legal needs of school districts are growing rapidly. As affordable education disappears for millions of Americans, much of higher education is going to have to change its business model. Anytime sea changes are in the offing, attorneys prosper because major directional changes always mean more legislation, regulations, court actions and more of everything lawyers are trained to do. The Education Sector explores how to take advantage of these and an avalanche of future employment opportunities. Highlights include: -What Constitutes the Education Sector? -Why Is the Education Sector So Hot? -Who Hires-K-12 -Who Hires-Campus Administration -Who Hires-U.S. Government -Who Hires-A Brief Introduction to Law Teaching Positions -What Does It Pay? -Breaking into the Education Sector -Finding Out About Education Sector Law Jobs Before Everyone Else Increasing reliance on technology represents an enormous change in the way schools must organize themselves and do business. Attorneys will be heavily involved in nurturing these transitions. The increasing complexity of campus life mandates that many legal and law-related staff functions need more specialized attention.

              Build a legal career in one of the hottest 21st century employment 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 13, Tricks of the Trade (and Prof...essional) Associations: A Huge Hidden Legal Job Market, examines the largely under the radar legal career opportunities in the 95,000 U.S. trade and professional associations. Formed as non-profits, they defy the typical image of what comes to mind when legal job-seekers hear that term. Rather than a struggling advocacy or public interest organization with its hand out, begging for donations and paying its staff peanuts, Hermann counters these associations share four features that should be of interest to every attorney: 1.They have substantial assets (more than $2 trillion in the aggregate); 2.They employ tens of thousands of attorneys; 3.You can find these attorneys in places other than just the in-house counsel office; and 4.They are corporations. Consequently, they share many of the structural features of their for-profit counterparts. Lawyers who work for their in-house counsel offices have many of the same responsibilities as their commercial company brethren. Their legal responsibilities mirror those of for-profit corporations quite closely, the major exception being that they do not practice securities law. And, like their commercial counterparts, associations hire lawyers for a wide variety of JD Advantage jobs. Tricks of the Trade delves into all this and more. Highlights include: -An Association Primer -Why Is the Association Job Market Hot? -Where Do Lawyers Work in Associations? -Selected JD Advantage Job Titles

              Build a legal career in one of the hottest 21st century employment 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 15, I, Robot Lawyer: Opportunitie...s and Threats in an Orwellian World explores the dramatic and profound transformative technology of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics. It is the fastest growing industry in the world and in less than ten years is projected to become the largest. It cannot be ignored and most certainly should not be ignored by attorneys, both those seeking opportunity within it and those whose livelihoods may be threatened by it. About 5.4 million service robots for personal and domestic use were sold in 2015, a 16 percent increase over 2014, with a sales value of $2.2 billion. This means that AI/robotics is a field to watch for attorneys. Hermann discusses the legal employment opportunities including with: (1) AI/robotics manufacturers themselves, and (2) the manufacturing facilities, service companies, and facilities that comprise their market. AI/robotics is a unique phenomenon that presents both immense opportunity while at the same time being an existential threat to a 21st century legal career. I, Robot Lawyer provides law students and attorneys with tactics they should be thinking about as they confront this phenomenon including technologizing and predictive analytics due diligence before leaping into a particular law practice area. Prepare for today and what's coming with I, Robot Lawyer. Highlights include: -A Brief History of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence -AI/Robotics Law Today...and Tomorrow -Why Is AI/Robotics Law Hot? -JD Advantage Job Opportunities -Preparing Yourself for an AI/Robotics Law Job -Compensation -Advance Notice of AI/Robotics Legal Job Opportunities -Protecting Yourself Attorneys who understand the emerging law as it develops will have an enormous advantage as AI/robo
