Answer Your Outsourcing Questions

  • Why do some corporations and law firms outsource legal work while others do not?
  • What ethical issues arise in outsourcing legal services?
  • Who is doing the outsourced work and what qualifications do they have?
  • What type of legal work is being outsourced? What are the concerns regarding the outsourcing of patent drafting and patent searches?
  • What impact, if any, will legal outsourcing have on the elite guild nature of the U.S. legal profession?

The International Out-Sourcing and the Legal Profession conference will be held on April 25, 2008 at the UC Berkeley School of Law.
