Staying Current

Resources for keeping up with new legal developments.

Bloomberg BNA Law Reports

BNA Law Reports cover developments—including litigation, legislation, and regulations—in many different practice areas. If you are following environmental law, for example, you could use the Daily Environment Report. Or if you have more focused interests, you could use the Water Law & Policy Monitor or the Green Incentives Monitor. Within health law, you could follow BioTech Watch, Health Care Fraud Report, Medical Devices Law & Industry Report, or about a dozen others.

Available in Bloomberg Law and BNA website (linked from law library's homepage) (UW Law only).
