World Bank Law Libraries

The website of the Doing Business Project hosts a Law Library that includes the largest free online collection of business laws and regulations. The database links to official government sources wherever possible. Translations are not official unless indicated otherwise. The collection is updated regularly but cannot guarantee that laws are the most recent version.
The World Bank’s Women, Business, and the Law Gender Law Library is a collection of national legal provisions impacting women’s economic status in 183 economies. Like the Doing Business Law Library, the collection is updated regularly but cannot guarantee that laws are the most recent version. Translations are not official unless indicated.

Chat Reference

The Hastings Law Library now offers Chat Reference to all our patrons. Chat Reference is great way for students and faculty to ask quick questions of a reference librarian while they are off campus, or from the remote recesses of the library. Chat is available whenever the reference desk is open, just go to the Ask A Librarian page on the Hastings Law Library web site. One reminder, though, questions asked in person at the reference desk have priority over questions asked through chat, so chat may be unavailable while the librarian is assisting other patrons at the desk.
