Should lawyers learn to code? The question that has launched a thousand conversations at legal tech events, with the answer usually being: no. But, maybe something has changed now with the arrival of a more focused approach and some real use cases for those potential coding skills.
And here’s a short video on how the system works.
The reality is that with the general way we talk about ‘coding’, the term refers to all of the above. It’s become a kind of shorthand to mean ‘anything that is not natural language’. It feels like we may need to differentiate things now, especially given the proliferation in ‘coding’ models and approaches, from very basic, to super complex. For now, it looks like we are stuck with the umbrella term, but AL would be interested to hear if anyone has a user-friendly taxonomy that can divide up the various uses. ]
