India is the hub of outsourcing in the world today. The latest LPO or legal process outsourcing industry is one of today’s fast growing sectors and its business is poised to touch USD 2 billion by 2015. India produces about 80000 law graduates every year and today only a small percentage of them join the corporate legal profession.
Recently a test called GLP (Global Legal Professional) certification test has been introduced in India which is said to further boost the legal outsourcing market from India. The Bar Council of India is also planning to allow foreign law firms to work in India and this will trigger the globalization of the legal industry. Some of the current legal outsourced services offered today include:
- Legal documentation
- Litigation Support
- Legal Research
- Document Review
- Intellectual property research
- Legal Animation
- Legal website design
- Legal transcription
- Legal Coding
LPO is a very attractive option for the law firms and attorney offices in the US, Canada and the UK. A legal professional in India is available for work at a fraction of the cost of that in the US. Good English language fluency and similar law systems based on the British common law along with the affordability of these law professionals are the plus points that make LPO so attractive to the legal communities in these developed countries.
