Staying on top of the most recent developments in the law is important. You can use basic search functions along with filtering to find the most recent cases.

For example, if you are a criminal practitioner, and curious about new developments on Miranda v. Arizona, you can simply perform a basic keyword search:

This example has all jurisdictions selected, but you can always narrow it to your State or the United States Supreme Court.

In this example, we will keep "All State and Federal" as our jurisdiction setting, as you may be curious what other jurisdictions are doing.

That search will bring back thousands of results, from all time periods, so we want to filter our results. Clicking on the "All dates" tab will allow you to enter the dates you are interested in.

Next, you can have the results ordered from "Newest to Oldest" within your selected date range.

You now have the most recent cases discussing Miranda suppression issues. From there you can always use other filters to narrow the results further if desired.

You can also create an alert on Miranda v. Arizona, which will send you an email notification when a new cases cites to that case. The article available here provides instructions on setting up an alert on a case or statute. In addition, you can create an alert on a keyword search, which will send you an email notification when there are new cases responsive to your search query. You can learn more about search alerts here.
