I was just wondering: How common is it right now for paralegal work to be offshored to India or other developing countires with cheap labor? I've read A LOT of articles about it being done with lawyer jobs, but have not heard much about paralegals.

Yes, I read the article. But I wasn't sure what kind of an impact outsourcing was having on paralegals. Does anyone know someone who lost their job to outsourcing?

I only know of two firms here who outsourced their paralegal work. One outsourced it entirely to the adjacent state (I can't give any further details) and laid off all of their paralegals. The other firm outsourced a bunch of their paralegal work and apparently have their remaining paralegals do nothing but answer discovery all day. I heard about both of these instances in the last six months. Both firms deal with litigation.
