What is Bloomberg Law anyway?
Bloomberg Law offers a growing body of legal information such as court opinions, statutes, regulation, secondary sources, and news, as well as the range of corporate and financial information.  Users can access an exceptional dockets database that includes Federal docket materials which up until now was only available on PACER.  More about Bloomberg Law->  http://about.bloomberglaw.com/ .

Are there any academic restrictions on using the Bloomberg Law password?
No!  Bloomberg Law does not have an academic restriction for law students.  This means you can use it to conduct research for class or your employer.  Access continues throughout the summer.
