The practice areas in which our audience work
The TotallyLegal Audience Insight Report revealed that our audience are building their careers in a vast range of practice areas.
The big hitters
The majority of our audience (16%) are currently working within Commercial law – up 2% year-on-year. With an uncertain political and economic future, businesses in the UK may be pumping money into their in-house legal teams.
Despite a 2% drop since last year, legal professionals working within Banking and Financial Services (12%) have outmanoeuvred a volatile industry wrought with business anxieties to retain their place in the second most popular practice area amongst our audience.
Despite a handful of switched places, the most popular practice areas within legal remained largely the same in 2018 as they did the year before – a trend that continued throughout the remaining, less common practice areas.
Regulatory on the rise
Perhaps significantly, the number of individuals in our audience purporting careers in IT / Telecoms and Regulatory & Compliance saw yearly increases of 1% and 2% respectively. This growth can perhaps be attributed to the introduction of GDPR in May 2018 and the general tightening of regulations within the technology industry.
