It is a Journal mainly dealing with legal informatics and computer law, founded, in 1975 by the Institute of Legal Information Theory and Techniques of the Italian National Research Council. From the beginning until 1991 the review was published by Le Monnier (Florence) and from 1992 onwards appears twice a year by Edizioni scientifiche italiane (Naples).

It is a scientific publication followed by numerous foreign collaborators, so contributions are written not only in Italian but also in the main European languages such as English, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish.

The Journal is devoted to the study and critical analysis of problems arising from the new information technologies applied to the legal field; it also focuses its attention to legal issues deriving from the development of information technology and telematics in modern societies.
