Chinese Law Research Guide: Other Subscription Databases

Resources for researching Chinese law.

Subscription Databases

The Hastings Law Library subscribes to a number of Internet-accessible resources that may be useful in your research. All of our online resources are listed here. You can access all of them on campus. Most of them also allow remote access. If you are not on campus you will be directed to this screen. To use the databases off-campus, enter either your email username/password or your name on your Hastings ID and your ID barcode number.

The information in these databases are not comprehensive, and the English translations of the Chinese laws are not authoritative and not always accurate. This is the nature of English translations of foreign laws. When available, students should compare more than one English translation of a legal document.
