Database of the Week: Current Index to Legal Periodicals

April 07, 2014

Lewis & Clark law students, faculty and staff have access to Current Index to Legal Periodicals (CILP), which provides the most up-to-date subject access to American law review articles. 

Legal researchers using CILP can find articles four to six weeks earlier than those using commercial legal periodical indexes. In addition, SmartCILP provides automated personalized e-mail delivery of only the portions of CILP that interest you. Both CILP and SmartCILP provide direct links to HeinOnline,, Lexis Advance and WestlawNext so you can easily access the full-text content of articles referenced.
