Here come the robot lawyers - Mar. 28, 2014. Will the future bring a Terminator style robot lawyer with a computer for a brain? Probably not. However, the increasing use of technology in enhancing the abilities of human lawyers might give one the idea that technology might be able to perform many of the tasks now performed by lawyers. Of course, human judgment and discourse will never disappear from the arsenals of practicing lawyers. But, in the sense that data and information analysis are the underpinning of many lawyerlike decisions, robot lawyers already exist. My legal assistant is a computer, which tracks my appointments, court dates, prioritizes my tasks, brings me into contact with the rest of the world, and helps with legal research. So, let's not imagine a future of robot lawyers. Let's imagine a future with human lawyers with enhanced computer assisted abilities. Take me to your leader.
