Do lawyers need to learn to code?

Synch’s Sergii Shcherbak , lawyer and Head of Software Development, is interviewed by Legal Tech Weekly on the question is there a new class of lawyer in town?

They are being called the “techno-legals” by some, “lawyer-coders” or “lawyer-developers” by others. Whatever the title, their dual set of skills are becoming increasingly valuable in a digital-driven world. Some in the legal profession even believe that the new literacy of coding is now a requirement of lawyers.

”Programming expertise certainly gives me a competitive advantage when it comes to advising digital businesses”, says Shcherbak,  “Knowing how the code functions and how the development process is structured enables a better understanding of how processes are run within software businesses and how their solutions work”, he elaborates.

Shcherbak heads Software Development at Synch and is responsible for software delivery, focussing primarily on deep learning applications. “With our own in-house resources, we have developed and deployed a number of LegalTech solutions, like PrivacyPolicyCheck.Ai, a free tool for analysing privacy policies for GDPR compliance. Synch launched this deep learning-based tool in mid-2018 and it has already processed some 2,000 privacy policies of clients from over 50 different jurisdictions. Now we are working on an AI solution for compliance analysis of data processing agreements and several other document review projects”.
