began in 2012 as a free email alert service for legal practitioners and their firms. The following year, the service was expanded to include reports on developments in the process of considering and improving on key Bills before Parliament's National Assembly and NCOP committees. This service was adopted by Legalbrief Today and became Legalbrief Policy Watch. In 2022, Policy Watch SA parted ways with Legalbrief Today, reverting to its original alert service - this time on LinkedIn. It has since joined forces with SA Legal Academy.
