Using the no-core shell model approach, we report on the first results for Li7 based on the next-to-next-to-leading order chiral nuclear interaction. Both two-nucleon and three-nucleon interactions are taken into account. We show that the p-shell nuclei are sensitive to the subleading parts of the chiral interactions including three-nucleon forces. Though chiral interactions are soft, we do not observe overbinding for this p-shell nucleus and find a realistic description for the binding energy, excitation spectrum, and radius.
