Keeping Current On The Law: Court Documents

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

Bloomberg Law


Westlaw permits users to create docket alerts, which search dockets for certain keywords/parties etc. You can do so from your alerts page.

Note that not every court record would be accessible under your existing Westlaw law school subscription. Bloomberg's subscription is generally more comprehensive.


  • To receive an email notification every time a new brief, pleading, or motion is filed by an attorney or party or on a topic, create a custom Briefs, Pleadings, and Motions search and then click the Create an alert icon at the top of the screen.
  • Law school Lexis accounts do not allow you to track dockets or receive email alerts about new dockets.
