Baidu offers Chinese law database

Thanks to Jonathan Ocko for bringing to my attention Baidu's Chinese law database, apparently offered in collaboration with Beida's Chinalawinfo.com.

I invite readers to check the database out for themselves and see how they like it; please let other readers know by leaving a comment to this post.

Research guides to Chinese law

I have compiled a list of on-line guides to research in Chinese law and posted a link on the left sidebar to this blog under "Research Guides and Other Resources". (Formerly there was a link only to Wei Luo's excellent guide, the Internet Chinese Legal Research Center.)

For those too lazy to move their cursor a few inches to the left, here's the link.

Wal-Mart's Chinese union, Part II

Walmart_3Last month I posted here about the union formed in one of Wal-Mart's stores in China. Here's some more commentary on the issue by Anita Chan of Australian National University (whom I quoted in the original post). While recognizing the degree of government control over worker organizations, Dr. Chan argues that this union has some potential to be meaningful. For a less sanguine view, with which Dr. Chan specifically takes issue, see this report by China Labour Bulletin.
