Law Lords

Could Interactive Democracy (ID) take over the role of the Law Lords?
There are 12 Law Lords who used to sit in the House of Lords (but have now moved) and are the highest court of appeal in the land - the supreme court of appeal. They are experienced senior judges and have a wealth of legal experience.
Even if ID eliminated the need for a separate House of Lords (counter balancing the power of The Commons and saving £60m a year), I would expect a continued requirement for the Law Lords to operate the Supreme Court of Appeal.
