Three subjects in Bloomberg Law’s Practice Centers—Banking& Finance, Labor & Employment, and Tax—now offer users a way to quickly construct a chart that makes it easy to compare similar laws in all 50 states. The State Law Chart Builder is available in the Practice Tools section when users click on any of these three subjects under the Practice Centers tab.
As an example, click on Banking & Finance under the Practice Centers tab. On the next page, click on Practice Tools among the resources under Banking & Finance. A list of subjects will come up that can be used to build a multistate chart. Clicking on one of those subjects will take users to a page where they (1) select the jurisdictions they want to compare and (2) refine the topics of the chart. Once those selections have been made, users simply click on “Create Chart.” The resulting chart can be exported to Excel or saved in the user’s Bloomberg Law Workspace.
If you have questions about how to use this feature, please see one of the reference librarians in the law library.
