Exciting Changes at CEB!

Hello CEBblog Community!

We are introducing exciting changes at CEB. CEB’s new membership-based community for California attorneys has launched.

Though we’ll keep our blog up for now, we will no longer add new content here. Instead, new current awareness articles, for every practice area that CEB covers, as well as real-time law alerts, will be published on our new community platform. Access to all of these law articles, new current awareness articles, as well as our archives, will still be available with a CEB Primary subscription, which is FREE.

To create your CEB Primary subscription:

  • Click here
  • Create a username and password

And that’s it! You’ll be brought directly to the CEB Primary dashboard.

In addition to legal current awareness articles and real-time law alerts created and curated by our in-house team of attorney editors and legal writers, you also have access to a searchable library California statutes and cases, as well as U.S. Supreme Court and 9th Circuit Court of Appeals cases.

We think you’ll be impressed by the utility, performance, and depth of content you’ll find in CEB’s new membership-based community.

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at 800-232-3444.
