Post Graduate Diploma Legal Process Outsourcing (PGDLPO) - Legal Process Outsourcing refers to the practice of a law firm or corporation obtaining legal support services from an outside law firm or legal support services company. This process has been marked by the practice of outsourcing any activity except those where personal presence or contact is required e.g. appearances in court and face-to-face negotiations. This process is one of the incidents of the larger movement towards outsourcing. The most commonly offered services have been document review, legal research and writing, drafting of pleadings and briefs, and patent services.This phenomena has been a part of the legal experience since the 1950s, where it was restricted only to patents. Later, firms began to contract certain services to back door firms. The process of subcontracting part of the legal process to different countries is at a nascent stage, with relatively consistent market growth. Legal process outsourcing has predominantly been to countries that had previously taken advantage of the business process outsourcing wave.
