Goal

The course offers an introduction, especially designed for lawyers (and law students), to the basic principles of computational thinking and programming.
Participants will be introduced to programming languages and coding techniques. They will learn how computational methods and tools can be used by lawyers, in legal practice.
They will understand how a computer can reach decisions and make predictions. At the end of the course, students will be aware of the main data structures for organising information. They will be able to develop simple algorithms and implement them in programming languages. They will be aware of the typical design, architecture and application of computational solutions in a legal context.
