Law students and faculty can access PACER federal docket information (and dockets for many states and some foreign jurisdictions) without charge via Bloomberg Law. If you don't have a Bloomberg Law password, you can register for one. Allow a day or two for activation. If you need immediate help, visit the Reference Desk or email lawlibref@virginia.edu.

What if Bloomberg Law doesn't have a document I'm looking for?

Bloomberg Law pulls its information from PACER, so if Bloomberg Law doesn't have a document, it's most likely that PACER won't have it either. Contact a reference librarian at lawlibref@virginia.edu for assistance.
