Forrester is projecting steady growth of legal jobs being outsourced offshore. Growing from 12000 jobs now to 35000 by 2010 to 79000 by 2015 with 60% -70% going to INDIA.
NASSCOM says that this is a substantial change from credit card processing and similar BPO services to hi-end work. Some of the legal work now being outsourced includes legal research and organizing documents for litigation.
On the other hand, Britain is opening up the doors for Indian Lawyers, willing to practice in their Country. From next year, the eligilibity exam – Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test – will be held in New Delhi and Mumbai. Fees 275 Pounds… not much as compared to what Lawyers are paid in U.K.
