"I claim that the trend which AI/ML continues for lawyers is one that it starts for programmers. Just like how a partner at Cravath likely sketches an outline of how they want to approach a particular case and swarms of largely replaceable lawyers fill in the details, we are perhaps converging to a future where a FAANG L7 can just sketch out architectural details and the programmer equivalent of paralegals will simply query the latest LLM and clean up the output. Note that querying LLMs and making the outputted code conform to specifications is probably a lot easier than writing the code yourself ー and other LLMs can also help you fix up the code and integrate the different modules together!"
