25,000 New Jobs for IP Professionals in India?

June 24, 2009

25,000-jobs2That’s one prediction:

“We expect that over 25,000 jobs for Intellectual Property professionals will be created in the next 2-3 years. As there is an increase in the need for IP professionals in law firms, knowledge and legal process outsourcing companies and other corporate houses,” said, Atulya Nath, CEO, Global Institute of Intellectual Property.

I’m not sure this prediction has concrete data behind it (I’ve already commented on this problem here.)  And the CEO of a school that trains IP professionals does have some bias.  Nonetheless, the IP job market does seem poised for growth in both the domestic Indian legal market (as IP enforcement becomes more prevelant) and in the ranks of LPOs that support US and UK IP work.
