Abstract

We present the curriculum, pilot offering, and initial evaluation of a CS Law based CS-1 course that was team taught by a Computer Science professor and a law school professor. Relevant legal topics were interwoven through the course. The results from this initial offering suggest that this sort of highly interdisciplinary offering can be successful both in computing education and in making students realize the relevance of Computer Science to the broader world beyond IT.

Keywords: Computer Science education, Programming, Legal education, programming for lawyers
