CES 2018: The End of Lawyers May Not Be What You Think | TechLaw Crossroads. Fellow lawyer and gadgeteer, Steve Embry, is attending CES 2018, and is pessimistic about the future of lawyering, given the speed (5G anyone?), and the incorporation of AI into robots, and into just about everything. I don't however, share that pessimism; although, I agree that lawyers will be doing different stuff in different ways in the future. Counseling, decision making, and other human stuff will always be required for the interaction and conflicts humans engage in. The information will be much better and the AI robots and computers will spout information and connections that have authority; but, until the robots take over, humans will stay in control. In any event, Steve, any problem with robots is several generations away, so relax and gadget on.We lawyers are like roaches. We will evolve and survive. We are just made that way. Whom do you think the robot makers will hire to solve their problems?
