Once upon a time, I was an IT boffin. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Sciences in 1989 and then embarked on an IT career.
About 20 years later, I was looking for new challenges and I thought: 'this law thing sounds interesting'. So, I went back to university and I graduated with an LLB in 2016. I practised as a commercial lawyer for a couple of years before the opportunity to teach at Flinders University presented itself.
I now teach Constitutional Law and a new topic called Law in a Digital Age. This new topic exposes law students to the interaction between law and technology by teaching them basic coding skills. In Digital Age, law students learn to write legal software applications with an access to justice focus.
You would be surprised at how quickly and easily someone who has no coding experience whatsoever can learn how to code. My Digital Age classes are proof of that.
If you want to see what my students have been able to achieve, check out these examples.
