Lawyers At High Risk Of Losing Jobs To Artificial Intelligence Concludes OECD Based On… Nothing But Vibes

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) said the occupations at highest risk from AI-driven automation were the highly skilled jobs representing about 27% of employment across its 38 member countries which include the UK, Japan, Germany, the US, Australia and Canada.

 “…all lawyers/legal consultants may not be able to be completely replaced by AI, as they are involved in advising their clients on a case-by-case basis.”

Attorneys won’t lose their jobs to AI, they’ll lose their jobs to other attorneys who use AI. It’s an efficiency battle akin to the introduction of computers. Some stodgy lawyers lost out because they refused to leave the library and use Lexis, but they were replaced by lawyers who did. And it didn’t shrink the industry because faster legal work just meant more legal work.
