What are the main benefits of being a lawyer and a coder?

“Being located at the technical side of the house, my role is not usually available to lawyers. While many lawyers are able to shift to working in a legal or business capacity at commercial companies and startups, the opportunities for lawyers to participate in fulfilling the core promises of a company are very limited. As a coder and a lawyer, I am directly involved in the creation of AI solutions for the legal industry and am able to operate autonomously to successfully execute a wide range of tasks. My dual background is particularly important for bridging the gap between our legal and technical departments.

“There is a lot of value in understanding the legal data we collect and at the same time being able to manipulate that data through writing Python scripts and SQL queries. I also find that experience in web development and Linux environment is very useful for tying up loose ends and delivering end-to-end solutions.”
