Centre for Computers and Law


The interdisciplinary Centre for Computers and Law of the University of Vienna (ARI, Arbeitsgruppe Rechtsinformatik) looks back at 20 years of teaching and research and is considered as one of the top 10 centres worldwide in this field. It is one of the few centres of computers and law with a strong focus in the technology of legal applications (e.g. legal information systems, automation of law, legal ontologies, etc.) and maintains one of the strongest interdisciplinary networks in Vienna and world-wide.
