It is that time of year when many law students need to pick a research topic. One time-honored method for finding a topic is to look at circuit splits and see if an issue sparks your interest. Bloomberg Law and Bloomberg BNA have made finding these circuit splits easy. Simply log in to www.bloomberglaw.com. In the middle of the landing page, under “Law School Success,” click the link for “Upper Level Resources.” Under the “Law Review & Journal Research” section simply click on the “BNA Circuit Splits Table” link and you will be able to choose the table you would like by reporting month. Once inside a particular month’s table the splits are organized by topic. Happy Researching!
