Foreign and International Law Resources Database (FILRD):

The Chinese (Taiwan) Yearbook of International Law and Affairs, Vols. 1-22 (1981-2004), is the first update to the Foreign and International Law Resource Database since its release. The Yearbook commenced publication in 1981 under the auspices of the Chinese (Taiwan) Society of International Law. Considered to be one of the foremost publications in the world concentrating on issues of greater China, it publishes on multi-disciplinary topics with a focus on international and comparative law issues regarding Taiwan, Mainland China and cross-strait relations.

Legal Classics:

We have added several historically important works including Bramble Bush and Order of the Coif. Bramble Bush is considered to be one of the greatest law books in history. This classic is required reading in numerous law schools and it is recommended by Law School Deans as the best introduction to the study of law for both potential and enrolled law students.
The Order of the Coif was the most ancient and one of the most honored institutions of the common law. Also, as an honorary scholastic society, its purpose is to encourage excellence in legal education by fostering a spirit of careful study, recognizing those who as law students attained a high grade of scholarship, and honoring those who as lawyers, judges and teachers attained high distinction for their scholarly or professional accomplishments.

U.S. Congressional Documents Collection:

The first release of the Congressional Record Daily Editions (Vols. 149-153#34) were added to the U.S. Congressional Documents Collection. The Congressional Record is the official record of the proceedings and debates of the United States Congress and is published daily when Congress is in session.

Code of Federal Regulations:

The 1984 Edition has been added to CFR. This update, which contains 100,000 pages of new material, is the first addition to this collection since its release. The 1985 and 1986 editions will be released in the coming months.

American Law Institute:

The much desired Uniform Commercial Code was recently added to the ALI Collection. For more than half a century the Institute has collaborated with the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws in developing and monitoring the Uniform Commercial Code, or UCC. The UCC, the longest and most elaborate of the uniform acts, is a comprehensive code addressing most aspects of commercial law, and is generally viewed as one of the most important developments in American Law.
