Current Awareness Services and Alerts

The Law Library offers current awareness services and alerts upon request. The following is a sample of the services and alerts provided. Many other electronic resources also provide email alerts! Please contact

Westlaw/WestClip & Lexis/Eclipse

Create an email alert for saved searches in Westlaw or Lexis.

Current Index to Legal Periodicals (CILP)

CILP is a weekly report identifying newly published law review articles organized by subject and is accessible from the Law Library's Online Database page. Email alerts, called SmartCILP, are available and can be limited to certain subject headings. (The most recent 8 weeks of CILP are also available on Westlaw.)

SSRN/Legal Scholarship Network

SSRN/Legal Scholarship Network is available through the Law Library's Online Database page. Users can register to receive email alerts when new papers are added to the system. Unfortunately, there is no way to limit alerts by subject. In addition, all faculty members are automatically subscribed to SSRN's Pepperdine Legal Studies Series e-journal (a periodic update of Pepperdine faculty writings).

Routing of New Periodical Issues

Upon request, the Law Library will route new issues of periodicals to faculty members before they are placed on library shelves.
