BNA is widely known throughout the industry for producing useful analysis and current awareness for legal practitioners. At UNC, we have maintained a large collection of BNA materials available to the law school community. These materials are useful to students working on writing seminar papers, looking for ideas for writing case notes, or scouting out and staying abreast of news from legal practice.
Last year, Bloomberg Law announced they had purchased BNA, and now BNA content is finally integrated and available on the Bloomberg Law interface. This means that Bloomberg Law now has the added feature of including all BNA secondary source content. This is an additional enhancement to a database that already includes primary law from the entire United States , full docket information via PACER, EDGAR filings, and a variety of other unique database features. If you are a student still haven't contacted the law library about obtaining a Bloomberg Law login and password, now is definitely the time to do so! Bloomberg is another legal research tool that students should become familiar with during their time in law school, as its use is growing dramatically in legal practice. Email reference librarian Tim Gallina about obtaining a login for Bloomberg.
On Bloomberg, you can find access to the BNA materials a variety of ways. On the Bloomberg homepage, you will see BNA portfolios and BNA Manuals listed under secondary sources. By selecting the "Legal Analysis and News" Tab at the top of the page, you will be able to find access to additional BNA content like the US Law Week.
