Biddle Law Library subscribes to three bilingual Chinese law databases. In November 2011, iSinolaw entered into a cooperative agreement with Thomson Reuters. As a result of this agreement, iSinolaw was replaced by Westlaw China on February 14, 2012.
Content previously available on iSinolaw will still be accessible to Biddle’s patrons through the Westlaw China platform, with additional content supplied by Thomson West. Westlaw China offers statutory, regulatory and case law in Chinese and in English translation, as well as practitioner tools, articles, current awareness items and other secondary sources.
Please note that Westlaw China is a stand-alone database, separate from the Westlaw for Law Schools platform. Westlaw China is accessible to the Penn Law community from either Lola
or Biddle’s E-Resources list
, with no separate username or password required.
An introduction and a user guide may be found at the Westlaw China home page
. For assistance in accessing and using Westlaw China, Lawinfochina and Lexis China, or for help planning and conducting research into Chinese law, email Gabriela Femenia, Foreign and International Law Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org
