UNH Law students now have access to the newest legal research database - Bloomberg Law. This service is aiming to be a direct competitor to LexisNexis and Westlaw. Cases, statutes, regulations, dockets, and many secondary sources are available. Additionally, your passwords to Bloomberg Law have no summer restrictions (use as much as you want no matter where you work!).
