U.S. Law Week (from Bloomberg BNA) tracks and reports on important cases, laws, and regulations.  U.S. Law Week is generally considered one of the most important weekly publications in the area of law.  U.S. Law Week may be accessed through the Internet or through a current awareness email, which you may subscribe to.
