Planning, managing and providing legal, public safety, protective and homeland security services, including professional and technical support services.

Employment Outlook

Careers in this cluster fall into the legal and the protective service occupational groups used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for occupational projections.

Legal

Employment in legal occupations is projected to grow 9 percent from 2020 to 2030, about as fast as the average for all occupations, and will result in about 116,600 new jobs. As law firms try to increase the efficiency of legal services and reduce their costs, there is expected to be strong demand to hire more paralegals and legal assistants. Additionally, the demand for lawyers is expected to continue as individuals, businesses, and governments require legal services in many areas.

Protective Service

Employment in protective service occupations is projected to grow 8 percent from 2020 to 2030, about as fast as the average, and will result in about 286,400 new jobs.
