Using Bloomberg Law as SA

Postby Anonymous User » Sat May 12, 2012 1:27 pm

I will be a SA this summer at NYC.

I just noticed that I can use my bloomberg law account as a SA without worrying about firm costs, unlike Westlaw and Lexis.

I was wondering whether any student or lawyer has used bloomberg, and can provide some insight.

Thanks!

it sucks

but Google owns

I find more with Google than anything else no lie, and some of the stuff I dredge up is mindblowingly relevant for it not to be anywhere on the legal search sites

Bloomberg hasn't paid for access to the best stuff, they're just starting out
