This article introduces the reader to the computer law which is the basis for this symposium. It begins by tracing the history of the development of computers and then considers the parallel development of computer software. Next, it sketches some of the significant events which have marked the legal evolution of computer law. Finally, the author introduces the pieces which appear in this volume and provides a very brief summary of each.
