Pkulaw videos [法宝视频]

May 6, 2013 at 7:36 am Leave a comment

We have a short (single user) trial (until June or so) to the newest addition to the large pkulaw-database (also known as the Chinalawinfo or InfolawChina databases) with the name of 法宝视频 Fabao Shipin, ‘PKULAW Videos‘.

This is a collection of 2000 recorded lectures in Chinese, mostly from the university classroom, on all kinds of (mostly legal) topics. Choose a topic from the list on the left hand side, for example ‘legal history’, ‘economic law’, ‘human rights’, etc. Most videos seem to be recorded at Beijing University, and not all of them are good quality recordings. Your level of Chinese needs to be pretty good to understand everything.

Lectures are divided into shorter clips, very often accompanied by screenshots of powerpoint presentations, which go along the topics of the lecture. They resemble MOOCS, but they are not for free. Browsing around, I found a couple of interesting lectures:

There must be much more, enjoy these videos while you can and let us know if you would like the library to purchase permanent access.
Once you get to a logon screen, press the button saying ‘IP 登录’ to access the site. If there are more people trying out this database at the same time as you, you are requested to try again later that day.
