Your job as Lawyers has 3% chance of automation. You are totally safe.
Do you think your job as Lawyers is safe from automation and Artificial Intelligence? Robots will destroy our jobs – and we’re not ready for it.
For every job created by automation, several more will be eliminated entirely. This disruption will be devastating for jobs like Lawyers.
Based on the 2013 study it’s unclear if Lawyers will be replaced by robots or artificial intelligence. The job Lawyers has Automation Risk Level: totally safe. (or 3% probability of automation).
Thanks to advances in technology, many jobs that weren’t considered ripe for automation suddenly are… A January 2017 report from the McKinsey Global Institute estimated that roughly half of today’s work activities could be automated by 2055, give or take 20 years.
Two-thirds of Americans believe robots will soon perform most of the work done by humans but 80% also believe their jobs will be unaffected. Time to think again.
The future is unpredictable, but based on how Lawyers work, it’s unlikely that they will disappear in the next 20 years.
Lawyers are highly trained professionals who have legal knowledge and know how to apply it. They help their clients, or the state if they work for the government, solve their legal dispute.
Lawyers are individuals who are hired by various clients to help in legal and judicial matters. They have various duties that include drafting formal documents, advise clients on pressing matters and giving oral advices.
Although lawyers handle similar cases, they are classified into different sections such as criminal, labor, environmental and administrative.
Lawyers also contribute to the society through charity work such as volunteering in orphanages and building homes for displaced women and children.
