Bloomberg Continues Ramp-Up in BLAW, Integrating Statutory Code Annotations with Digests

[Cross-posted on LegalResearchPlus]

Bloomberg continues to ramp up its BLAW product with the very useful integration of annotations in its statutory codes (so far the United States Code and New York’s Consolidated Laws) and the Bloomberg Law Digest (BBLD).

As an example, if one retrieves the initial section of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), 42 U.S.C. § 12101, it is now possible to conveniently view (and copy/link to/work with) both the U.S. Code annotations and the corresponding BBLD topics “Government” and “Social Security” in the BLAW side frames.
