bloomberglawschoolsuccessBloomberg Law continues to expand its resources available to law students.  Bloomberg Certification is available for students to demonstrate their mastery of the resource.

First Year Resources provides access to selected first year case books.   There is information about learning how to write briefs, memos, and outlines while learning how to read cases, manage time, and study effectively.

Upper Level Resources also provides access to selected case books and has articles about selecting, surviving and thriving at internships, clinics, and summer jobs.  Resources categorized as Career Resources, Practice Ready Resources, Clinic Resources, and Law Review Resources are also available.
