This week Aaron and I cover non-lawyer ownership, non lawyers, and access to justice. Also — GOOD NEWS! — We also learn that every lawyer should be bringing in at least $200,000 because statistics.

For the interview, Fastcase CEO Ed Walters and I talk about law and robots, which will not necessarily help you get your $200,000, but is a pretty interesting discussion of the law of robots and the role artificial intelligence may play in the future of law.

Last semester, Ed taught the “Law of Robots” course at Georgetown Law, and because I’ve always enjoyed Ed’s thoughts on technology’s influence on the future of law (see my “Will Computers Become Better Lawyers Than Humans?” article, for example), I used that as an excuse to talk about robots and the future of law.

Ed and I explored some of the roles computers may play — not all of which endanger lawyers’ jobs. In fact, some of the roles computers may play could actually make law practice a lot more rewarding.
