Prof. X,

I received a request for access to Bloomberg BNA Criminal Law Reporter. Please note that the only resources provided by FIU Law Library and FIU Libraries that require individual logins to access are Bloomberg Law, Lexis Advance and WestlawNext. Every other resource is accessible directly when on campus or through our proxy server when off campus using your FIU credentials.

The key is to always use the FIU Law Library website to access the resource in question. To access Bloomberg BNA Criminal Law Report follow these steps:

  1. Go to the FIU Law Library's website.
  2. Click on "eResources" under "Library Resources"
  3. Click on the "B" tab for "Bloomberg BNA"
  4. Scroll to "BNA Criminal Law Reporter" and click.

If you are on campus, the Criminal Law Reporter will load automatically. If you are off-campus, you will be prompted to login with your FIU credentials - as if you were logging in to your work computer - to utilize our proxy server

Once you are in the BNA Criminal Law Reporter, you may create your own account using the "Create Account Profile" at the top left below the Bloomberg BNA logo. Creating your own profile in BNA will allow you to save searches and receive updates of the reporter and all other BNA content. Your profile is customizable to your research needs. 

Note: if you are doing research off campus, it is good practice to simply login to the proxy server from the beginning; that way all resources will automatically re-direct. You will have to use the same browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc.). To do so:

  1. Go to the FIU Law Library website.
  2. Click on the Off-Campus Access button on the bottom left.
  3. Login with your FIU credentials.

Please let me know if you have any difficulty or if you require further assistance.

Thank you for contacting the FIU Law Library
