Current Awareness

Current Index to Legal Periodicals (CILP)

CILP is a service of the University of Washington Gallagher Law Library that provides tables of contents to over 500 law reviews and legal journals under 100 subject headings. It comes as an e-mail to faculty who request it. Contact Elana Olson (81696) or your library liaison for assistance with CILP.


SmartCILP is an automated personalized e-mail delivery of CILP available to full-time faculty of the law school. It allows the researcher to choose law journals from which to receive tables of contents, as well as to create a personal profile from various subject headings by which to receive notices of articles within the chosen subject. SmartCILP profiles can be changed each week, allowing subscribers to tailor the delivery of CILP to their changing research needs.
