Recently we received an update from Bloomberg on some noteworthy new and innovative additions to the database. One is Bloomberg’s new online-only Bankruptcy Treatise, available on Bloomberg Law through the main tabs under Practice Centers >> Bankruptcy. Long in the making, the new treatise is designed to compete with more established works; Bloomberg advertises it as having over 600 chapters and 13,000 pages of analysis—similar in size to West’s mainstay, Norton Bankruptcy Law and Practice 3d.
