Bloomberg Law Now Available to UNH Law Students

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!).

TODAY: Cost Effective Legal Research

How does legal research really work outside of law school? What does "in plan" mean? The library is presenting a bite-sized afternoon of cost effective legal research training. Stay for one, two, three, four, or all presentations. All events are taking place in the OTC (library classroom, first floor). Pizza is from Constantly Pizza. (full schedule below)

Two Spring Research Courses Available!

This Spring semester the library is offering two 1-credit mini courses. Each course meets for 8 weeks on Wednesdays from 1:00 - 3:00. Factual Research meets during the first half of the semester while Advanced Legal Research meets during the second half. Take one or both!

Does the Library Own the Periodical You are Looking For?

You've identified the perfect source in your research but it is not available on Westlaw or LexisNexis. The Library subscribes to many other databses, but searching through each one for a source will be time consuming. The solution?
