Workshop Law Is Code – Day 1 – Craft Your First LegalTech App (given in English)
Objective : Learn how to apply your legal reasoning to algorithmic design
In this module, you will learn how to translate your legal reasoning into a language that an engineer can understand. You will understand how to structure your requirements into user stories and how to break down the main pieces of an app's architecture design. After a crash course on computer programming (where you will learn basics such as variable assignments, iterations, if... then... statements, HTML scraping, etc.), you will be asked to design the algorithm powering a LegalTech app in the field of bankruptcy proceedings. Then, you will get your hands dirty and build your app from scratch. Watch at the end of the session your LegalTech app unfold live on the internet and witness the magic of algorithms in action!
No experience in coding is required. We will explore the basics of how algorithms work and apply them during practical exercises during the workshop.
