Enhancements to Bloomberg Law

Share this article

Bloomberg Law has made legal research easier with new search enhancements. BLaw now automatically corrects misspelled words in a search not in quotation marks, as well as incorrect Boolean operators and symbols. BLaw will now presume an “AND” between words in searches not containing any Boolean operators (e.g., illegal search will be searched as “illegal” AND “search” unless quoted as “illegal search”). This means that quotation marks are no longer necessary to search by phrase, unless you are using other Boolean operators. BLaw aids your searching by providing auto-complete suggestions for legal terms and other common searches.
