CV Assistance

There are many resources that will assist you in automatically collecting citations to your work, including the following:

  • Westlaw & Lexis alerts in Law Reviews databases (in Westlaw go to Notifications > Alerts; in Lexis use the bell icon)
  • MyHein alerts (see Current Awareness box for link)
  • Create a Google Alert for your name, which can pick up coverage of interviews beyond the original source (see Current Awareness box for link)

Current Awareness, Legal News & Research

Most free and subscription databases provide options to set up alerts for saved searches, sign up to newsletters, or follow legal news on selected topics or cases.

Contact the law library for advice about how to set up alerts and unsubscribe from those you no longer need in your favorite databases.
