A. Harrison Barnes, the Founder and CEO of LawCrossing, started his career as an attorney himself. In his working days as an attorney itself, Harrison sensed an urgent need for comprehensive information about national and international legal job openings in the US. This led to the advent of LawCrossing which was launched in July 2003. With more than 140,000 legal jobs online and growing, this site is the world’s most comprehensive legal job board.
LawCrossing closely monitors and analyzes the recruiting and hiring needs of more than 250,000 legal employers. These employers belong to virtually every law firm, corporation, government office, and public interest organization in the United States and LawCrossing helps them in getting the right job candidates. A unique feature of the working of LawCrossing is that the company does not charge employers to post their jobs. Instead, LawCrossing contacts and investigate thousands of employers each and every day to learn of new positions.
Thousands of law students, associates, attorneys, and legal staff browse for jobs and become aware of the latest happenings through law-related career news and articles on the site. Many LawCrossing subscribers say that they benefit immensely from the constantly updated new legal jobs and news and articles of the legal market. LawCrossing even tells their members about jobs which are posted only on employer websites, those which are publicly disseminated or not.
A significant percentage of American attorneys and law students subscribe to LawCrossing. In 2007, Inc. magazine voted LawCrossing as the 72nd fastest growing company in the US, much owing to the clear vision, sharp foresight, and extensive legal experience of Harrison Barnes.
