Hey Legal Tech Companies … Take a Moment Out of Your Busy Schedule to Set Up an “Hour of Code” Program at a Local School!

This week is “Computer Science Education Week” and is being celebrated around the world: Almost 200 governments, school districts, and nonprofits pledge to expand CS for millions of students, globally.  Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Montana, North Dakota, and Pennsylvania, all announced plans to expand CS in schools, joined by 76 U.S. school districts and 80 nonprofits.
