What are My Alerts?

The Monitoring & Alerts feature consists of a personalized alert system that allows you to follow or keep track of any new activities regarding a practitioner, a case or a research. You will receive a notification on the platform (and via email too, if you wish) every time new data is added to Jus Mundi that is related to your alerts.

All new alerts are available in “Alerts” under the "Products" tab in your toolbar, or in the drop-down menu under your name on the top-right corner of the screen.

Please note that the data saved under My Alerts is secured and only you will have access to it.

Why should I use My Alerts?

With this tool, you will have the latest and most updated information about any practitioner, case or research of your interest!


✔️ Keep your finger on the pulse of the latest legal information

✔️ Monitor activity relevant to your research

✔️ Discover industry trends

✔️ Personalized alerts deliver relevant information before you even begin researching

How can I access My Alerts on JM?

You can access this feature by clicking on hovering your mouse over "Products" in the top bar of any Jus Mundi page and then clicking on "Alerts", or by clicking on your name on the right corner of the top bar and clicking on "My Alerts" from the drop-down menu.

If you want to access My Alerts through an IP premium access:

Legal monitoring is a personal feature, which means you will need an Individual Account to use it - it's easy and free of charge!

1 - When you click on the "Add to Alerts" button, a banner will show up saying that you are using Jus Mundi through an IP access and a link to request an Individual Account will appear.

2 - Once you have made the request, our Care team will send you an activation link by email to create your account.

3 - If you are a Client, you can always request your account by directly sending an email to [email protected]

What are Search Alerts?

This new feature allows you to keep track of updates that are added to Jus Mundi regarding your research, which includes both search queries & filters. This means you will receive a notification every time something new is uploaded to the platform that matches the concept you looked for on the search engine + any filters you might have added.

Why should I use Search Alerts?

Adding an alert to your research will save you a lot of time as you will be able to monitor all the latest legal information that is added to Jus Mundi without having to conduct the same search over and over again to check for updates.

It is an addition to our existing “My Alerts” feature that allows you to follow a legal practitioner and/or an international case.

How can I add an alert to my research?

Once you have entered a search query and selected any filters that are relevant to you, click on the “Add to Alerts” button at the top-right hand side of the page to be informed of any updates to your research.

The title of the alert is automatically set to show the search query you looked up and the filters you added, but you can change it by clicking on the pencil that appears on the right side of the box:

How can I open my Search Alerts?

To see all the alerts you have set so far, you can hover your mouse over "Products" in the top bar from any Jus Mundi page and then click on "My Alerts"; or you can click on your name on the right corner of the top bar, and access "My Alerts" from the drop-down menu. There you will find a list of all the alerts you have created, including the ones related to your research.

Keep in mind that the alerts with notifications will be displayed first on your screen.

You can filter your alerts to display just the ones that are related to your search by selecting “Research” on the right-hand side of the Alerts page.

You will be able to change their title or remove them at any time by using the corresponding icons beside the alert: the pencil to edit the name of the alert and the cross to delete it.

How to use Search Alerts?

Your Search Alert can be as general or specific as you want it to be, which means you can add them just to search queries, just to filters or to both at the same time.

Remember that any potential search queries will appear under the title of the alert and any filters will be displayed inside a grey text-box, like you can see in the examples below:

ex. the “Moral Damages” research contains only a search query; the “Sports Arbitration” research contains only filters; and the “Corruption of a Member of the Tribunal + Award” one contains both search queries and filters.

If you are looking for a legal expression: be sure to put it between "quotation marks”, so that the Search Alerts recognises that your research query encompasses all the words at the same time and doesn't see it as separate concepts.

As you can see below, "Most Favoured Nation" is between quotation marks, which means that the Search Alert will be created on this expression as a whole and not just on the words Most, Favoured or Nation. This is important so you don't receive undesired and irrelevant notifications.

Keep in mind that the broader the alert you set up is, the more results you are likely to see and the more specific the alert is (i.e. detailed search query and several filters), the less updates you are likely to receive.

What are alerts on Cases & Practitioners?

You will receive alerts for practitioners whenever there are new appointments or any new documents added to Jus Mundi related to this individual, including new awards or disqualification decisions. For international cases, the notifications will show up whenever (i) the status of the case has changed; or (ii) if a new document is added to that case.

How can I add an alert to a practitioner?

When you have a practitioner's profile open, you can click on the bell-shaped icon on the right-hand side of the screen that reads "Follow" and this individual will be added to your alerts.

How can I add an alert to an international case?

Once you have opened a document on JM, you can start following that case by clicking on the "Add to Alerts" button located just above the title of that case.

You will also find another "Add to Alerts" button under the CiteMap feature, which can be seen when you scroll down the page dedicated to that case, as shown below:

Can I receive notifications by email?

Yes, you just need to select this option on your Alerts page and you will be informed of any updates by email too. Keep in mind that all alerts are sent at the same time.

What kind of subscription do I need to access My Alerts?

Just like the “My Alerts” feature, you will need a Legal Practice or a Legal Intelligence subscription in order to access the Search Alerts. This means that if you have an academic or a Legal Research subscription, you won't have access to this feature.

Also, you will need an Individual Account to use it, meaning you won't be able to access this feature if you are logged in through your law firm's IP address.

If you are a client of ours, feel free to request your Individual Account by sending an email to [email protected] - it's free of charge!
