Lawyers have a lot of political pull, it will be the last job artificial intelligence will take. It's a waste of time building AI for it

Have been reading," A History of Artificial Intelligence and Law in 50 papers " . Didn't know that computer scientist have been getting computers to argue law cases better and better since 1989 . They are quite good now. Tested on sixty years of Supreme Court cases, they have correctly predicted outcomes on average 70% of the time. This compares with a group of 83 legal experts rate of 59% .
But, like the early weavers who smashed automated looms, US lawyers refuse to let "legal expert systems" do even trivial tasks for the public. (It took a local Judge a month to "accept" our lawyer's resignation, so we can continue our probate case.)
When these Artificial Intelligences (AIs) finally are allowed to council /represent people, and write law . . . we will have arrived at "backseat humanity". AIs will be driving our cars, doing our designs, doing our research, and governing us.
Throughout organic life, when something is no longer used . . . it shrivels and disappears. Is there any chance that the human race can move gracefully toward this inevitable, and natural end?
