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