Introducing Bloomberg Law

bloomberglaw

Rutgers-Camden faculty and students now have unlimited access to Bloomberg Law!  Like Westlaw and LexisNexis, Bloomberg Law is an easy-to-search source for case law and other primary legal sources.  Bloomberg Law also provides excellent coverage of court dockets (including comprehensive access to federal dockets and underlying court papers found on PACER), EDGAR filings and other SEC materials, hundreds of news feeds, and useful business information.  A link to Bloomberg Law is now available via the Law Library’s Research Databases page.

Getting started is simple.  Visit www.bloomberglaw.com and click the yellow “Request a Law School Account” button on the right-hand side.  Click “Get Started Now” to fill out your registration information; be sure to use your Rutgers email address!  Once you’ve submitted your information, you’ll receive an email with your system-generated login credentials.

Once you have logged on, you will have unlimited access to all Bloomberg Law content.  First year law students will receive orientation to the service in your LAWR classes, but any and all students (and faculty!) are encouraged to stop by the Reference Desk with any questions about navigating the website or finding specific information.  We are here to help you get the most out of Bloomberg Law and all our research tools.
