Today Bloomberg Law is announcing the release of its 15th practice center which is focused on E-Discovery. Bloomberg is moving rapidly to consolidate existing BNA news, practice and analytical resources as well as creating new content to enhance attorneys workflow efficiency.

The E Discovery Practice Center offers a comprehensive solution that integrates news, primary sources including both published and unpublished state and federal court opinions, tools, sample forms, and expert guidance. The press release indicates that this is the only resource of its kind available on an integrated legal research and business intelligence platform. The E-Discovery Practice Center will be available to all Bloomberg Law subscribers at no additional cost.
The practice center’s home page features high value content including a curated collection of fully searchable state and federal court opinions, state-specific discovery guidance and rules, and BNA’s E-Discovery Portfolio series. I don’t recall seeing a collection of state ediscovery rules in any other product.
