More evidence that LinkedIn is getting some serious traction in the legal market. Back on April 14th Kevin O’Keefe, builder-o-law blogs, told us that 118,000 lawyers were signed up with the service. He used this search to demonstrate the rate of adoption.
As of tomorrow, that post of Kevin’s will be 2 months old. And I’m here to tell you today, that the number of LinkedIn Lawyers has spiked to an incredible 216,000!
Regardless of Kevin’s methodology (read his post for a full rationale on his technique), that exact same search shows an increase of 98,000 profiles in just two months. That’s simply remarkable. At that pace, we could expect to see LinkedIn exceed a half-million lawyer profiles before the end of the year.
