The Tax Management Portfolios (which the law library has access to through the Bloomberg BNA Tax and Accounting Center database, and most of which are available in our print collection) need no introduction to those whose area of interest is tax law. However, Bloomberg BNA also publishes a set of corporate practice series portfolios, available through the Bloomberg BNA Corporate Law Resource Center. These are mini-treatises, each focusing a corporate law related topic such as corporate governance, compliance/regulations, mergers & acquisitions, corporate finance, corporate legal departments, financial reporting, and forms of business.
The Corporate Law Resource Center can be accessed by logging on to the law library's VPN, clicking "Bloomberg BNA Databases A-Z" from the drop-down menu under legal databases on the law library's website, and then by clicking "Corporate Law Resource Center" from the list. The portfolios then can be accessed by utilizing the options available under "BNA's Corporate Law Portfolios" on the left side of the page.
These portfolios can also be accessed from the Bloomberg Law database (this is a separate platform from the Bloomberg BNA databases and does not require the law library's VPN), by clicking the "Legal News & Analysis" tab at the top of the main page, selecting "Bloomberg BNA Portfolios" from the drop-down menu, and then by choosing "Corporate Practice Series" from the list. UHLC students and faculty can access Bloomberg Law by visiting www.bloomberglaw.com and clicking the "Register a Law School Account" link from the main page. Fill out the information (there is no activation code) and make sure to use your University of Houston e-mail address. You should receive your user id and password within 24 hours.
