Yes we were thinking of a legal and localized equivalent of codeacademy for law when we said there's simply not the same level of legal learning resources online as there is for coding.

Coding resources have come on a thousand fold, even in the last 5 - 10 years with top level teaching available for free / freemium via Coursera codeacademy, freecodecamp, udemy, udacity etc. Also all well supported by active user communities alongside stackoverflow and the massive open source community supporting the most popular languages and libraries.

There isn't an equivalent for legal knowledge in that sense, so far as we are aware.

Likewise you can't easily have personal projects with law or medicine - to do so is almost certainly illegal in most jurisdictions.
