The Future of The Law? Unclear, or maybe not

The future of the legal industry continues to unfold from disruptive predictions to "Don't worry, be happy!", the Law is in good health.

In the old legal schoolbooks it was written that the law would disappear when communism is finally built.
Then people would have a high consciousness, self discipline and moral values and there would be no need for laws to maintain public order.
Sounds beautiful and utopian. Like a dream for a better world.

Today, a new mantra for the disappearance of law and the legal profession is being spread.
This time, the reason is high technologies and, above all, artificial intelligence (AI) , which have a great potential in finding the most optimal solutions for all cases.

In the latest version of the Law's death, it's not the profession disappearing, only the people who practice it. According to the darkest disruptive forecasts human beings will be replaced by robots and AI.

Following the news, public views and trends in the world today, it makes sense to rethink the role of law in the new relationships that are being created.
Brand new fears about the future of mankind are floating in the air.

It seems that law and the legislature have a lot of work to do.

It is no longer about deals and domestic crime, it's about our survival as a species, #homosapien (Latin -"wise man" ).
Is it ready Law to face the challenges of the digital age, in which everything turns into bits, into code?

Will there be laws, governing human-robot relationships?
Will the Law complement the main laws of robotics?
Who will be responsible for damages caused by humans to robots and vice-versa and from robots to robots?
Will there be laws regulating robots' rights and rights of humans with regards to robots?
How will people's fundamental rights be guaranteed at a time when you can change your ownership of a property via an electronic statement?
With what laws can we stop climate changes?
Will there be penalties for the climate criminals?
How can we preserve the villages and small towns and can we prevent the world from transforming into mega cities controlled by visions and preferences of corporations?
How will we deal with gender diversity in the bipartite structure of the family law?
Can European regulations prevent global corporations' invasion and use of our personal data, preferences, tastes?

And so on ...

It's time for the media to amplify the buzz about these and other vital public-order issues instead of overexposing the news of one-day shows riding the waves of #metoo, #youtoo, and other loudmouthed intimate problems.

Do you think that man has reached the pinnacle of his evolution and does not need law and laws?
Should we let machines and artificial intelligence determine the rules by which we live?

What do I think about #thefutureoflaw?

The Law must reduce backlogs.
In the future, legal profession and law enforcement will continue to be presented with technological advantages.
Technological innovations are unquestionably the future of everything.
And the Law will not remain out of this reality.
