Lawyers Won’t Lose Clients to DIY Legal Services

Lawyers Won’t Lose Clients to DIY Legal Services | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it
People who want to do their own legal work are, naturally, not likely to hire a lawyer in the first place. And people who hire lawyers do not want to do their own legal work.
Sharrock's insight:

Every few weeks, I find an article promising that some kind of technology will replace the human employee--teacher, accountant, etc. This article explains why lawyers will not probably be replaced. For some of the same reasons, teachers will also never be replaced...at least, not for a very long time.

 

excerpt: "Currently, consumers can pick from a range of options for do-it-yourself legal services. You can get a divorce at OfficeMax, a will from Amazon, and dissolve a partnership with LegalZoom. Those are just a few examples, of course. There are hundreds of DIY legal documents available online and offline."
