Washington: A new study has revealed that robots may soon make lawyers obsolete, as the state of the legal profession in 2030 doesn't look good.
According to the report by Jomati Consultants, it is no longer unrealistic to consider that workplace robots and their AI processing systems could reach the point of general production by 2030, Newser reported.
The researchers said that robots could eventually "do the work of a dozen low-level associates, would not get tired and would not seek advancement, pay rises.
Those in the top rungs of firms would offer "real understanding and human insight" to clients, the report says, and it suggests that because the top partners of 2030 are currently in their 30s, they're likely to push the AI business model.
All these changes will apply most to "very large, high-value commercial firms," whereas smaller, specialist firms might see less of an impact, the report finds.
