Any Lawyers or Law Students Here?

Dear all,

I am new to FCC and still a newbie at coding as well. I have a law degree which did not equip me with much of valuable or essential skills except for mastering the art of paraphrasing. So here I am trying to learn something that I could actually use even if I didn’t turn out to be a lawyer.

Therefore, I am curious if anyone here is of the similar education background as me. If so, just drop a comment here. Let’s connect~

Cheers! :vulcan_salute:

I’ve known several people to transition into coding from a law background. Once upon a time I thought I was going to law school.

That’s interesting that you say that the law degree doesn’t seem valuable or essential. What makes you say that exactly? Considering what I majored in (classical languages), law seems so, so-very relatively practical!

I sometimes toy with the idea of trying law school so I’m curious about why you’re now trying coding. If your perspective could save a fellow human from wasting time on something like a law degree, I’d be grateful to hear more!
