Bloomberg Law Available at Biddle
February 06, 2009
Penn Law School is fortunate to be a beta site for Bloomberg Law (BLAW), a division of Bloomberg, a major provider of business and financial information.
Bloomberg describes BLAW as an "all inclusive tool providing in-depth legal analysis, filings, opinions, real-time and archival news, indexes, rankings, company and biographical information, research and streaming live trial coverage on a single, integrated desktop platform."
Bloomberg has been expanding their legal entries to include law blogs in practice areas and general interest legal blogs. The Bloomberg Law Reports are in-depth legal analyses geared towards the legal and financial markets, including Banking and Finance, Antitrust and Trade, Asia Pacific Law, European Law, Health Law, Immigration Law, Insurance Law, Intellectual Property, Securities Law, and Sustainable Energy.
To access BLAW, or any part of the Bloomberg databases, you will need to be trained and provided with access by their representative, Sharon Pate. Sharon will be at Biddle February 10 through February 13, and will be available in the computer lab on the main floor of Biddle. While you can drop by and sign up for training while she's here, you can also email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to set an appointment. Training is available for Penn Law students, faculty and staff.
