Online eBay-like resource for legal services

Hey gang, I got an e-mail from one of the people behind www.lawsourcing.com/. Check out the site. I think it just went online very recently...there aren't too many projects posted as yet. But, I think it has potential.

Here's some commentary I received:

The site is called LawSourcing, and it's an online marketplace where lawyers can post projects (need for research memos, discovery drafted, documents reviewed, etc.), and other lawyers and law students can bid to complete those projects in an auction format (somewhat like eBay, but for services for lawyers).
We think it's going to be a great way for (1) lawyers to outsource some of their work to other lawyers and law students (thus having a year-round "virtual clerk"), and (2) allow lawyers to pick up project-based work at their discretion.

We launched the site last week and are just starting to get the word out to lawyers through "grass roots" efforts. We also have a blog
http://www.lawsourcing.com/blog/) on the site focused on the outsourcing of legal services, which has been gaining a lot of attention as of late (the topic, not our blog). If you have a few minutes, we'd appreciate any feedback on the site (we're looking for critical feedback so we can improve it).
