Outsourced Legal Services

A recent New York Times article described the outsourcing of legal work to lawyers in India. The concept of splitting white collar work into a standard and a customized component is interesting. A careful splitting of such work requires coordination of the two parts and assumes that the reports generated can be pieced together in a modular format.  Does this change the way legal reports will be produced ? Will the back and forth between the customized and standard parts of the report ruin any cost efficiencies ? What are the limits to such work process adjustment ? Which industry will be next – and, more importantly, how will this apply to higher education.
