Keeping Current On The Law: CILP & SmartCILP

Many online resources enable readers to create alerts to keep current on the latest legal information.


Current Index to Legal Periodicals (CILP) is a weekly list of recently published legal articles, organized by topic. CILP is not an email alerting service, but a web service that updates weekly. 

Smart CILP

SmartCILP is the weekly email service of CILP that can be customized to a user's interests. Profiles are based on three criteria (topic heading, subject heading and journal titles). Before creating a profile at the SmartCILP website, users must obtain a Smart CILP authorization code.

Instructions are available here.
