At Bloomberg Law, we’re building the world’s most sophisticated legal research platform. Our platform is built on a massive search engine that ranges over billions of legal documents—laws, lawsuits, books, treatises, how-tos, and all the legal news from our award-winning newsdesk. On top of this dataset, we’ve built a suite of analytics and ML-powered tools that enable attorneys to do things like analyze how a judge has ruled on a topic, compare contracts to the market, or parry their opponents’ arguments with a case they haven’t even thought of! We’re on a mission to automate away the tedious aspects of lawyering and help our customers work smarter on the hard stuff.

We’re transforming the legal industry with technology, and we’ve built a working community in which women, people of color, and other underrepresented groups thrive. We’re committed to continuing to evolve a culture that recognizes, supports, and promotes people of all backgrounds. We’re looking for people who approach their work with thoughtfulness, care, and a spirit of cooperation.
