The CUPL library is available to all CESL students and scholars. There is a special CESL reading room with an extensive collection of books and journals.
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.
Online databases such as Westlaw and LexisNexis are also available.
