More Outsourcing

Another announcement of a major law firm going to India, this time in a very big way. Not just for legal services, but for staff functions.  Lawyers normally want these functions right "next door" where they can get the information they request immediately ("instant gratification").

More and more, however, technology is permitting the placement of these staff functions where they can be performed well, but more inexpensively. Thus, lawyers can be in the center of things, be where the clients and courts are, and have their support be elsewhere, in less expensive "digs."  Sounds more and more like the "virtual assistant."
