CUPL Library

The CUPL Library was the first to focus entirely on collecting legal and political materials in China and ranks among the top in the country in terms of both the size of the collection and the speed of acquisitions.




The collection covers nearly all legal academic literature published in mainland China since the 1980s and possesses an extensive collection of books published since the end of the Qing Dynasty including: codes, statutes, and cases.


The CUPL Library is divided into three sites with a branch on the Xueyuan Road campus, and the Fa Yuange Library and Wen Yuange Library on the Changping campus. The bibliography can be searched in both English and Chinese).

Online databases such as Westlaw and LexisNexis are also available.


CESL Reading Room and Collection

There is a special CESL Reading Room on the forth floor of the Fa Yuange Library in Changping. The collection holds an increasing number of books in European law, international law, human rights and comparative law, predominantly in English. It is our purpose to expand the collections in these domains, coupled with a great deal of electronic subscriptions to international law journals, to a first class European and international law collection, with all major textbooks and case books on a wired variety of domains. We aim to provide the collection for the study of these domains, for demanding students and top scholars.
