The Legal Innovation and Technology Group (The LIT) Presents: Lunch N' Code

Bennett Jones

Ever wondered how computers are revolutionizing the legal field? Do you want to learn how to do it? Are you interested in learning how to talk to a computer, but are too scared to try because you thought this is only for computer nerds?

If the answer to those questions is yes, then get ready, because you are about to get introduced to a LIT event!

The Legal Innovation and Technology Group is proud to introduce to you the workshop series: Lunch n’ Code. In this one of its kind workshop, participants will be introduced to basics of coding.

No science or coding background? No worries! The workshop is designed for people with little or no background in science, engineering, or computer programming. The sessions are tailored with a specific focus on the utility of coding in the legal field. Everyone, from every background is encouraged to attend these events and explore what computers are capable of doing in the legal field.

There will be lunch, there will be coding! Simply drop by the session, grab some lunch, sit with your friends and learn some coding in meantime!

This workshop is suitable for:

  • Law students with no background in science or programming, but are interested in learning the basics of computer programming
  • Students with coding background who are interested to see the applications of coding in the legal field
  • Faculty members who are interested in learning more about the capabilities of computers to revolutionize the field
  • Entrepreneur-minded people who believe this technology is about to change how we practice law
  • Anyone else who’s interested in grabbing and some food and having a chat about computers!


We are looking forward to seeing you in the first session of this workshop series, which will be held on November 2 during lunchtime.

If you would like to get more information about the event, or if you would like us to help you overcome your stress about learning how to code, do not hesitate to contact us at

While you are welcome to just sit and participate in the discussion, we highly encourage you to code along with us during the workshop. This would maximize the learning effectiveness of the session, and allows you to discuss your coding problems with the instructor after the session.

The programming language used for these workshops will be R. To be able to code along in the session, you will need to install the R and RStudio applications on your computer. The instructions to download both R and RStudio are below.

If you need help or experiencing issues downloading or installing these applications, please reach out to and we will be glad to help you do this.

We are so excited to bring this LIT event to you, and we look forward to seeing all the enthusiastic students in this workshop!
