Tip of the Week

Alerts are a great way to stay informed on everything you are interested in. You can be alerted when the KeyCite® status is updated on a case or statute with KeyCite® Alert, or follow changes and additions to a docket with Docket Track. There are several other alert types you can use to receive up-to-the-minute developments including WestClip®, Publication Alert and Docket Alert.

Now you can manage all of your alerts on one platform. You can view your alerts similarly to how you view search results. View all of your alert types or select just one alert type to view. You can also filter your alerts. Filter by Active or Inactive alerts, Client ID, whether your alert Has Recipients, or by specific Recipient.
