While law firm incubators began before the great recession, they have received increasing attention in light of the challenging employment outlook for recent law graduates and young attorneys in the last eight years.

Until 2010, there were probably only about half a dozen legal incubators, and most of these were housed in law schools. In the last five years, the movement has grown significantly.
