Rotating lawyer through an administrative post

A very large law department of a company headquartered in New York City recently decided to replace its accomplished, long-serving administrator, who took another administrative position in the company, by a lawyer from the department. The lawyer will hold that position for two years and then rotate out, replaced by another lawyer. 

This innovative idea has many benefits for the law department, although it has downsides, too: will there be lawyers who want to take on the tasks; will there be continuity of administrative policies, will the staff in the administrative group take to the rotating leadership?
