Not only is Chile know for its wines, but it is also one of the top five legal publishers in Latin America. Our Country-by-Country page contains several Chilean legal research guides to help you get started. Additionally, if you venture down to the Lower East Side, head to LC Call Number KHF where you can have a look at our Chilean legal collection, including current Chilean laws and the Civil Code of Chile in English. You can browse the collection in Morris. Look at the Latin American Journals & Serials page for a quick glance at our holdings in Chile. We even have a few Chilean DVDs.
Legal databases containing Chilean legal material include vLex and InterAm (subscription databases) and SciELO (open access).

Que lo pases bien!
Latin American DVDs

You can find them easily in the Morris catalog by conducting an Advanced Search with the country name as a Keyword, and limiting the Material Type to DVD-VHS. If you have any suggestions for domestic or foreign films to add to our collection, please send an email to Teresa Miguel. Remember, the film must have a legal premise or at least a tangential legal issue -- well, we have the run of Sex in the City because Miranda is a lawyer....
