Clarification on "R" constant?

I'm pretty confused right now. The R constant, or universal gas constant has been troubling me. In one problem it is defined as .0821 L*atm/m*K. But soon after that it becomes 8.314 J/mol*K. Can somebody explain this concept to me? Thank you.

J is defined in terms of m3 and Pa. So convert L -> m3 and atm -> Pascals to get the new value of R.
