The Italian Society for Law and Literature (ISLL) was established in June 2008 at CIRSFID, the Interdepartmental Centre for Research in the History, Philosophy, and Sociology of Law and in Computer Science & Law, based at the Bologna University School of Law, and is conceived as a network designed to promote the study of Law & Literature and, more broadly, Law & the Humanities. Its main objective is to establish contacts among scholars interested in this approach, so as to encourage an exchange of ideas and to support research and institutional initiatives on the national and international stage.
