OK, I know … you don’t want to hear about how lawyers should learn how to program. And sure, many of you may not need to learn how to code. But with everything that’s bubbling up in and around the profession these days it might not hurt to at least consider familiarizing yourself with what goes on behind the scene.
If you find yourself agreeing with that premise, then you’ll find this nice short post on Programming Resources for Lawyers on the Ex Libris Juris blog useful. It’s brought to us by the folks at the Harris County Law Library down in Houston.
They begin by referring to a couple of their earlier posts on the subject. These provide some great background on whether or not lawyers need to learn about coding and the importance of this “new literacy.”
They offer some good advice and an opportunity to get your digital feet wet.
