The Bureau of National Affairs (BNA) founded in 1933 began publishing The United States Law Week, which focused primarily on reporting all legal news in the federal government. US Law Week quickly became the standard source of news about the US Supreme Court and all federal courts. Today, the company boasts the largest network of reporters in Washington, DC, that report exclusively on and gather legislative and regulatory materials on every topic imaginable. Many of their titles have become standard works in their areas of focus.

BNA Publisher Change

You may notice that some familiar titles formerly published under the imprint of BNA (Bureau of National Affairs) will look a little different. BNA and Bloomberg Law have merged and the new company is beginning to roll our new binders that reflect the new company name: Bloomberg BNA. Both companies have assured us that nothing more than the publisher’s name will change. We also encourage you to take a look at the updated list of Bloomberg BNA titles available via electronic subscription. One new title of note is BNA’s excellent Water Law & Policy Monitor.
