Will Your Next Lawyer Be A Robot?

It seems like an odd question but artificial intelligence (very smart computers and robots) is coming to the practice of law just as it is impacting many other fields.

In the foreseeable future your lawyer will still be human but computers will be able to do more automated legal tasks. (Title searches seem like any area where a computer could probably reduce human error).

A supercomputer is particularly good at searching through millions of electronic documents but less proficient at the specific legal analysis that lawyers are trained in.

Supercomputers aren't yet able to sense emotion in others and communicate in a manner that is effective with humans. So you wouldn't want a robot to negotiate your next contract or home purchase.

However, for more menial tasks computers will probably be taking on a greater role in the legal field.
