Chinese Law on LexisNexis: enjoy it while you can

Without much fanfare, LexisNexis recently added the LexisNexis China Law Database with English language translations of Chinese laws and regulations. After inquiring about a Chinese language version of the database, I learned that the China Law Database appeared on academic accounts by mistake and will soon disappear. If you are attending AALL, please consider lobbying LexisNexis representatives to keep the database.  Paul and Erika’s survey research demonstrated a strong preference for Westlaw among librarians, so perhaps LexisNexis can distinguish themselves by offering better access to foreign law materials.

In the meantime, take advantage of the China Law Database while you can.  File-Name:LNCHNL.
