About EU daily alerts

The Practical Law EU professional support team monitors all the key EU information sources to produce a series of daily alerts covering a wide range of sectors and practice areas. This is vital information for lawyers who need early warning of EU law developments in their chosen sector or practice area.

The alerts include links to:

  • Documents published by the European Commission, Council, European Parliament and other EU Institutions, including consultations, proposals, draft legislation, Official Journal publications and press releases.

  • Notices of forthcoming meetings, announcements, press conferences and other events.

We send the EU alerts every working day in the late afternoon (unless there are no relevant developments that day), keeping you fully briefed on developments in your chosen area or areas. You may sign up for as many alerts as you wish.

The key legal developments covered in the alerts are also covered in more detail in the weekly EU email updates, which include background and links to relevant Practical Law materials (see EU legal updates and weekly email ( ).
