The American Lawyer surveyed the AmLaw 200 firms (see Law Firm Leaders: Conservatively Optimistic). Lots of interesting information on the state of Biglaw; I’ll focus on offshoring. 

The article notes that “Firms embrace temp workers — at least domestically. Seventy-seven percent of respondents said their firms are using contract lawyers or plan to do so. But just 6 percent said they currently offshore work to a foreign country or plan to do so.”

Just 6%?? About 150 firms responded, so that means at least 10 Amlaw firms are offshoring legal work. That’s more than I would have guessed.
