Staying on top of proceedings, court rulings, and other changes in the legal industry is no easy feat. The legal profession requires rigorous academic study in order to be successful, but being constantly on call leaves professionals at the risk of exhaustion. In our fast-paced world, it's hard to stay on top of daily news, let alone manage the intricate details of industry updates. Luckily, we’ve entered the age of the newsletter where organizations will break down the information you need into less than 100 words and provide a link to a complete article.

The legal industry isn't exactly on top of the newsletter game. However, we've created a list of 4 ways you could recieve information directly to your email. Try subscribing to these newsletters to if you're ever feeling overwhelmed with the constant deluge of information.

If you’re interested in the big picture…

SCOTUSblog Daily Digest

This newsletter provides a daily review of legal news from across the spectrum. The focus of SCOTUSblog is predominantly on the Supreme Court, and subscribers receive daily updates containing 4 - 7 links from the most important Supreme Court related news from around the web.  The blog also features a wealth of SCOTUS content such as blog posts, podcasts, videos, and more.

If you’re focused on local verdicts…

State-specific Newsletters    
Do a quick Google search to find what resources your state or local government provides on court rulings or other legal news. For example, Indiana, where Formstack has its headquarters, provides a few different resources. These include the Indiana Court Times, Indiana Court Case Clips, and a legislative updates blog. If you’re struggling to find a resource for your state, there are other options. For example, Wyoming has a great Supreme Court website, but doesn’t offer a way to receive updates from the site to your email inbox.  Justia Law provides a resource to get free daily opinion summaries from Federal District Courts and State Courts.

If you only want updates from your field of practice…

Their newsletters focus on individual areas of practice such as biotech or tax law. If you want to ensure you’re getting the information you need about your specific field or industry, this is the newsletter for you.
