- interdisciplinary nature,

- interconnection of articles,

- intergenerative exchange of knowledge,

- internationality of authors.


The world is interdependent. Our today's and tomorrow's questions cannot be answered from only one single point of view. By connecting the dots Ri helps to face the future.


Ri connects people and their ideas.

The new Ri 03/2018 was published on 1 November 2018 (PDF-Cover).


Law and technology have always been in a race and technology has always been way ahead of the law. But the digital society needs law and technology at eye level. Recht innovativ (Ri) therefore offers expert information, interdisciplinary communication and networking of people and knowledge.


Ri is a poetess of change and a prophetess of solutions.


It is accompanied by the English sister magazine Ri-nova 2018 (cover as PDF).


"Recht innovativ" means "innovative law" and "very innovative" at the same time.
