Advice to Law Students RE: LPO

LPO is here to stay.  So how do you advise a law student to adapt to this new reality?  One law professor asks a series of good questions:

“OK, what legal work can’t be outsourced?  Let’s figure out what that is and give our students job security by teaching them to do that.”  Or we could modify the question slightly, adopt a “best practices” approach and ask “What legal work can best be outsourced, and what legal work can best be done by someone local?”  Or maybe the real question we need to ask is “How can we best prepare our students to practice law globally, including how to use outsourcing effectively?”

I’ve also weighed in on the subject.
