Coding and Law

I am looking into Patent law and wanted to learn some coding as it would benefit that branch of law. Where should I begin?

EDIT: In this post I found serious mistakes and misunderstanding, so this is really a "correction and rerwite". 1) Probably you can find patented programs in OS or firmwear, so C language is a good choice I guess. 2) programs are under patent law AND copyright law. Learning both is better.(trivia: Us and Japan are not under the same treaties. Some in common, some different, I remember. I can't tell What is which, though.) 3)I don't know what program is useful for practicing intellectual property law, or if that already exists, but it should be some similarity checking tools. It would be in the category of machine learning, so the language suitable for that(e.g. Python) is also a good choice. Lesson: think first, post later 😅 sorry for posting a lie. Both learning law and learning programming are hard. Good luck 👍

I know nothing about patent law, sorry. But I would always recommend starting with something visual like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. After that, you should have enough knowledge of logic and computers to decide where next.
