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 on the Hastings Library's A-Z Database List. You can access all of them on campus. Nearly all of them can also be accessed off campus after logging in to the Hastings proxy server with your email username/password.

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.
