EMSI, a company that does employment and economic data analysis, recently crunched the numbers on demand for (and wages of) attorneys in the 50 states and District of Columbia. The story was reported by the New York Times, and is available here. Turns out that only two states (Nebraska and Wisconsin) as well as D.C. are experiencing a shortage of attorneys.
Too bad for the rest of us. New York tops the list, but Missouri comes in at a not-too-shabby (or perhaps all-too-shabby) 10th place.
