Legal Source (EBSCO) (off-campus access limited to members of the College of Law community)

This comprehensive database combines access to EBSCO's Index to Legal Periodicals and Books (1981-present) and Index to Legal Periodicals Retrospective (1908-1981), with access to more than 500 full-text journals not available in the either of the Index to Legal Periodicals modules, and access to more than 100 full-text journals, many published in Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, that have not been previously available in any database. In full, Legal Source provides access to more than 880 full-text journals, with indexing (using the “Advanced Search” option) by title, author(s), subjects, court cases, statutes, books reviewed, languages, etc.


This Chinese-language database contains the original (untranslated) versions of laws and regulations (including interpretations by the Supreme People's Court); judicial decisions of the Supreme People's Court and Supreme People's Procuratorate; and full-text articles from leading Chinese law and political science journals. The database also includes extensive coverage of legal developments in China; legislative background on select Chinese laws; the full-text versions of treaties to which China is a signatory nation; and examples of contractual agreements that comply with applicable Chinese law. ChinaLawInfo is the companion (integrated) database to LawInfoChina, which provides English-language coverage to much of the same content as ChinaLawInfo.
