If you need to stay on top of your legal industry, competition, or general news, Google Alerts is a powerful, free tool to cut down on your search time. Google Alerts prompts you to enter specific keywords you want to receive updated information about and will automatically email you a list of new articles, blogs, and posts on the Internet about any subject or keywords chosen.
You can chose how often you want to receive alerts, and can easily add, change, or delete keyword lists.
Google Alerts saves you time in two ways: Google hunts down information across the Internet for you and there are no accounts to log into. After you set up your alerts they are sent to you with links and snippets so you can choose at a glance what interests you most.
