Current Legal Literature Services
The Library offers six subject-specific current legal literature services, covering:
- actual innocence,
- capital punishment,
- domestic violence,
- energy law,
- patent law and
- trademark law.
These services provide basic bibliographic data for recent articles appearing in U.S. legal journals and non-U.S. legal journals published in English. Additionally, the first page of each article is available in .pdf format for 60 days, providing readers with a more complete idea of the scope of each article and the biographical background of the authors.
Each current legal literature service is typically updated two to three times a week, depending on the volume of cites. Additonally, each service is RSS-enabled, providing subscribers with automatic notices of updates.
