ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg BNA today announced the launch of Bloomberg Law: Bankruptcy Treatise, an online-only resource that will transform the way attorneys consume information and conduct legal research in the fast-moving, procedurally complex area of bankruptcy.
Bloomberg Law: Bankruptcy Treatise integrates the trusted news content of Bloomberg BNA's bankruptcy news coverage with over 600 chapters and more than 13,000 pages of content and expert analysis from over 60 renowned judges, law professors, and practitioners. The Bloomberg BNA editorial team, with input from outside contributors, will update the material as bankruptcy rules change and courts apply and react to them, ensuring that all aspects of federal bankruptcy law and local rules are current. For example, the latest amendments to the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, which went into effect on December 1, 2014, appeared in the Treatise, with their first annotations, that same day.
"The treatise represents thousands of hours of research and writing by skilled bankruptcy lawyers," said The Honorable D. Michael Lynn, U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas and Editor-in-Chief of the Treatise. "I believe it to be an important and useful addition to bankruptcy literature."
Practitioners will be pleased to discover that Bloomberg Law: Bankruptcy Treatise includes expert commentary and analysis for all 92 different local rule sets throughout the country, providing unique insights across jurisdictions. And as an online resource, Bloomberg Law: Bankruptcy Treatise supports users' workflow so they can quickly navigate to related bankruptcy rules and federal and state cases linked throughout the treatise.
"With the launch of Bloomberg Law: Bankruptcy Treatise, we are continuing to redefine legal research and legal information use, transforming the current model of a treatise — which is locked in a print paradigm — and shifting it to an online resource that is continuously updated," said David Perla, President, Bloomberg BNA's Legal Division. "As a result, users will be more knowledgeable and know they are using the most current bankruptcy law so they can provide more valuable counsel."
The product is available exclusively to Bloomberg Law users and is available on Bloomberg Law's sophisticated legal research platform, which provides faster access to the information users need through advanced search capabilities, case law citation and easily accessible content. Bloomberg Law, a fully integrated legal and business intelligence research solution, combines Bloomberg BNA's trusted news and expert analysis with Bloomberg's comprehensive market data and cutting-edge technology.
