My concern is if the legal department is outsourced there would be an open door to corruption and questionable deals. You could have a group in power that would want to steer business to friends or donors. As a taxpayer, my vote would be to keep it in house. Maybe downsize it some and hold the department supervision accountable for costs, but don't outsorce it.
