Nordic China Law Week 2018: Information Session on Online Chinese Legal Research

On 23 April 2018, the Finnish China Law Center and University of Helsinki, one of the Center’s 10 member institutions, hosted an information session on online Chinese legal research as part of Nordic China Law Week 2018 (17 – 23 April 2018), coordinated by the Finnish China Law Center.

The information session was attended by representatives from some of the Center’s member institutions, and focused in particular on the use of CNKI (Tsinghua University) and LawInfoChina (Peking University).

The Center provides access to LawInfoChina to its member institutions. More information about the LawInfoChina service offered through the Finnish China Law Center can be found on the Center’s blog.

In addition, later this year the Center will start a trial of certain CNKI products relating to legal research. During the trial, the Center’s member institutions will have access to these CNKI products. The dates of this trial will be informed on the Center’s blog when they have been finalized.

In addition to the various online services offered through the Center to its member institutions, the Center has a large and growing collection of legal publications in both English and Chinese. The Center’s collection is housed in the main library of the University of Helsinki.
