Relevance Sort Is the New Default for Court Opinion Searchessorting

When running searches for Court Opinions through a Court Opinions database in the All Legal Content search and from the Court Opinions search tool, results are now displayed in relevance order, although users still have the ability to resort results by date, court or by most cited opinions. Bloomberg Law’s court opinion relevance algorithm sorts search results based on the factors most important to a legal researcher, including the responsiveness of the opinion to your query, the date of the opinion, the issuing precedential authority of the issuing court, and citation history.

Boyd School, University of Pennsylvania Law School, University of Illinois College of Law, Georgia State University College of Law, Washington & Lee University School of Law, Seton Hall University School of Law and Lewis & Clark Law School) have created a new online bankruptcy treatise containing more than 634 chapters of substantive legal analysis. You can explore discussion of the historical antecedents of bankruptcy law provisions, practical guidance, links to the full text of relevant statutes, rules, or court decisions, and comprehensive bankruptcy local district court rule commentary and coverage. This treatise is the first of its kind as it is updated on a real-time basis as the law changes to help you stay informed and current. The treatise is accessible in the Bankruptcy Practice Center, as well as through the Bloomberg BNA Books & Treatises page.
