Software is affecting employees in so many other industries. The legal and the accounting profession are also getting hit hard. The days of the astronomical research legal fees that lawyers charge are becoming a thing of the past. Computer software is doing much of the grunt work. Many lawyers, paralegals, and support office staff will find themselves out of jobs in the future. Online companies are also doing a lot of the basic tasks, such as setting up an LLC, at much cheaper prices, than can be done with the local family lawyer. Small business personal accounting and tax software is also taking away income from the accountants gravy train. In short, more and more professional occupations that were by in large one man bands or small enterprises with a few employees, are having the rug pulled out from underneath them, because of advancements in software. Lets also not forget outsourcing of legal and accounting work overseas.
