There has been a lot of talk and hype about India based legal process outsourcing (LPO) projects lately, and Forrester Research, the premier US based research organization has actually found the approximate number of people in India doing legal outsourcing jobs was only about 12000 at the end of 2006. By 2015 the number of legal outsourcing jobs in India is believed to reach about 79000.
Actually, legal outsourcing from India started only after 2005. India had earned about 6 Billion US dollars from outsourcing projects in the US prior to 2005, and the contribution from legal outsourcing to this amount had been almost nothing. Forrester has also predicted that by 2015 there will be a dramatic increase in Legal Outsourcing and the annual earning for India could go up to $ 4 billion.
Some of the different types of legal process outsourcing sent to India include legal documentation, legal transcription, legal research, litigation support, and legal website design and maintenance. A steady percentage of professional lawyers are already preparing themselves in India to get into the lucrative US based LPO jobs.
