We all know that this is an unprecedented time for law firm layoffs.  The legal job market is tough these days, to say the least.  Many attorneys are finding themselves without a job and wondering what course to follow for their future, and what first steps to take along that path.

In order to help answer these questions, West has created Between Cases, a site with free resources for those looking for new jobs, trying to brush up on their skills in between jobs, thinking about starting their own firm, or even attorneys who just want to learn how to increase their business.
The site offers free Continuing Legal Education courses and Legal Education Webinars for attorneys who want to take some time to learn new skills or brush up on recent developments in the law. 

There are also free Westlaw resources for job-seekers available on the site, as well as an offer for a free month of access to AttorneyJobs.com.

The site also has an entire section dedicated to helping attorneys hang up their shingles and start their own law practices.  There's information there about legal marketing options, as well as introductory offers for Westlaw and deals on print titles.

Even if you haven't been laid off or if your own firm is still running smoothly, the site contains information that can help you perform even better, including offers for business intelligence titles like "Attracting and Retaining Clients: Leading Lawyers on Marketing a Niche Practice Area, Competing with Larger Firms, and Building a Good Reputation."

In a highly competitive legal market, in terms of both employment and business opportunities, Your Legal Career Center can help attorneys find work, develop their business and hone their practices.
