CHINESE LANGUAGE SKILLS SEE HIGH DEMAND IN LEGAL MARKET – Bilingual lawyers are in strong demand, according to a survey of attorneys from Robert Half Legal on the topic of foreign language skills. In fact, 42 percent of respondents from the largest U.S. law firms and companies said that the legal market was seeing an increase in legal jobs requiring lawyers with Chinese language skills. The demand for Chinese language skills is among one of the top trends influencing hiring in the legal field.
Rising demand in the legal market for Asian language skills
Ranking second among desirable languages in the survey was Chinese, a finding that echoes a larger legal hiring trend of more Asian language-speaking lawyers in cities like Los Angeles and New York. While Chinese, particularly Mandarin, leads Asian languages in terms of demand.
As specialists in Business Chinese, we have experience of working with students working from the legal sector. We understand how important it is for you to have a strong command of Business and Legal Chinese in the legal industry. Take a look at Legal Chinese Course here.
Automotive, high-tech industries hiring bilingual corporate counsel
Industry trends are favoring corporate lawyers with foreign language proficiency as well. For example, the automotive industry is hiring bilingual corporate lawyers for litigation, while patent attorneys are in demand in the technology industry. This latter trend is especially true for software and cell phone companies that are based in Asia or doing business on that continent, as well as those litigating their competitors’ suspected patent infringement. These legal jobs are also mostly project-based and commonly consist of exhaustive document investigation.
Foreign language skills have an ongoing importance for corporate legal departments looking to fill in-house counsel and paralegal jobs on a permanent basis. But while many of these new bilingual roles are temporary, ongoing demand could result in a steady stream of work for legal professionals. Junior corporate lawyers and recent law school graduates, for instance, are finding rewarding contract work in global-minded companies.
Foreign language skills and your legal career
It remains to be seen just how great an impact on legal jobs will result from globalization and immigration — not to mention policy changes in these areas. But as you consider the steps along your legal career path, bear in mind that the need for legal professionals who know a foreign language should continue as more law firms and companies focus on serving a more multicultural and globalized marketplace.
