This paper is devoted to the analysis of the legal activity digitalization problems. In the course of the study of the stated problems, the authors come to the conclusion that today the thesis about the complete replacement of lawyers by robots and the disappearance of the legal profession is unreasonable and premature.According to the authors of the paper, it is impossible to completely trust artificial intelligence to solve legal issues. Currently, a robot can replace a lawyer only in execution of programmable routine tasks, such as drawing up a simple template contracts, claims, search for court practice materials, analytical information, transfer documents to the court, etc. But at the same time, artificial intelligence cannot compete with the human in the issues of a comprehensive analysis of a particular problem; in giving an assessment of the fairness and honesty of the person who has applied. The field of law cannot be translated into a programming language due to the variety of terms, categories and differences in their interpretation by sectors; law has no clear boundaries and framework. High-quality professional legal activity is possible only with the participation of a professional lawyer with experience in this field. It is difficult to imagine a robot that is performing functions of a representative in court or a robot-scientist (lawyer). Artificial intelligence today can perform almost any routine mechanical work with much greater productivity, and the activities of a lawyer are aimed primarily at solving more complex intellectual problems
