Will lawyers become obsolete?

Wired had an interesting article about a "futurist" who predicted lawyers will soon be obsolete.

Specifically, the claim is that AI might automate contract law.  This may well be, but it might be a tad premature to say lawyers will soon be obsolete, given that they do much more than just write boilerplate contracts (and realistically, much of that low level work has already been replaced by legal document sites).

We don't think lawyers have to worry about computers taking their jobs... yet.
