If we could only outsource legal self-help books, too...

india.jpgHow much did DuPont save last year by outsourcing legal work to Mumbai? Approximately $500K. Over 29,000 U.S. legal jobs have already been "offshored" to similar Indian outposts, and that number is expected to increase to 79,000 by 2015. The loss in revenue for U.S. lawyers is estimated at $4.3 billion (though nobody's calculated the savings to clients).

Hey, come to think of it ... why not just create an affiliate law office on the subcontinent? That's what GE, America's fifth-largest corporation did, sending an annual $3 million in legal work overseas. How long before government work is outsourced, too? Wait ... it already is.

(...And if GW is really in favor of outsourcing, why doesn't he step up for the greatest sacrifice?)
