This year, fewer people attended the meeting. However, we had two attendees from Asia: Liying Yu, Associate Law Librarian from Tsinghua University Law School Library, in Beijing, and Dr. Priscilla Leung from Hong Kong City University Law School and Isinolaw Limited. Ms. Liying Yu came to the United States as a visiting scholar at New York University Law School, while Dr. Priscilla Leung came to AALL as an exhibitor for Isinolaw.com, an Internet Chinese law service provider.
First, the participants took turns introducing themselves.
Second, Priscilla Leung, the Executive Director of Isinolaw Limited discussed Isinolaw. One of the Chinese services that Isinolaw provides, but is not available elsewhere, is the English translation of the judicial interpretations promulgated by the Supreme People's Court of the People's Republic of China. The annual subscription fee for Isinolaw is US$3,000 for one user. For detailed information, please see http://www.isinolaw.com. Dorothy Li proposed forming a consortium among American law school libraries to subscribe to Isinolaw.com.
Third, we reported that after using http://www.chinalawinfo.com for a year, the faculty and students at Washington U. Law School are satisfied with the services. Chinalawinfo.com provides the most comprehensive legal research to primary and secondary Chinese legal information. The annual subscription costs to both the Chinese and English language websites is only US$750.
