A Computer Could Do That Job

The title of an article by John Markoff at the NYTimes called "Armies of Expensive Lawyers, Replaced by Computers" says it all.  The article is about software programs that sort through documents received in e-discovery. 

I often tell my students that if they want to find a growth sector in law, its development of tools for conducting e-discovery -- those law students who have computer engineering degrees or programming knowledge can really make a place for themselves in a world where technology is going to shrink the need for associates and contract attorneys who grind through giant databases of documents.
