Degree in LPO, anyone?

call_centre_vlima_com_thA new university course offering a qualification in legal process outsourcing (LPO) has been launched in a barrage of acronyms.

The course is a joint venture between Indian legal training providers/recruiters Rainmaker and the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) School of Law.

The Rs.18,000 one-year on-line taught course is snappily entitled P.G.D.L.P.O. (or Post-Graduate Diploma in Legal Process Outsourcing, to give it its full name).

According to a press release published on LPO blog Legally Yours, the syllabus will cover: "Professional English Proficiency (“PEP”), Virtual Intelligence Methods (“VIM”), Legal Education and Proficiency (“LEAP”), Skills, Personal Effectiveness and Enterprise Development (“SPEED”)".

Catchy! (even though VIM's long-form is slightly confusing).

Apparently, according to the press release, 500 students have applied already for the first semester and the University is going to roll out a second intake in August to meet demand.

This programme could very well catch on and it could also be something that LPO providers facing high staff attrition have been clamouring for.

The main question will be whether law graduates will really be up for spending another year studying and losing themselves in an acronym jungle.
