So You’re A Lawyer Who Wants to Learn to Code? Well, Which Language Should You Learn?

Some say learning to code can make you a better lawyer or even that it is an essential skill for lawyers in the 21st Century. It might even lead you to quit lawyering and code full time.

But once you decide to learn to code, there are any number of coding languages you could learn. Where should you start?
