In 1968, the first seminar on Electronic Data Processing and Law was held at Stockholm University. Later that year, The Working Party for Electronic Data Processing and Law was established at the law faculty of the University. Regulatory issues and computers as tools for assisting legal work had started to attract attention. The topic area soon became a part of the legal curricula at the law school and the Working Party subsequently developed into a meeting point for scholars and professionals with backgrounds in information science and law. Eventually leading to the establishment of The Swedish Society for Computers and Law in 1981.

The contributors to this volume all have long experience in the field of Scandinavian Law and IT as well as extensive knowledge from multifaceted international settings. The articles have been arranged under subheadings, related to the research areas outlined above. In addition to this, several contributions address a topic that is rapidly becoming an area of acute concern, namely regulatory techniques. Important to mention, however, is that the articles should not be read as exclusively addressing one single issue. In line with the understanding of legal informatics as an interdisciplinary field of research, it is our belief that proficient contributions in the topic presupposes knowledge about both regulative and substantive IT-related matters, and this is also something that is clearly reflected in the majority of the texts presented here.
