研究成果: 著書/レポートタイプへの貢献


In this chapter, we explain the benefits of introducing a Coding for Lawyers course in the legal curriculum and present our initial experiences with the course. The chapter outlines the broader context of the transformation of education in a digital age; describes the importance of computer code in a legal context, particularly in terms of the on-going disruption of the legal profession; and, introduces the main features of the course and its initial reception. The main argument is to suggest that the lawyers of the future will be transaction engineers managing the responsible deployment of new technologies and the design of a new global architecture, and that to perform this function effectively, legal professionals need to develop a number of new skills and capacities, including an understanding of the basic concepts and power of coding.
