LBTN Update Service

Why It’s Important

In California, changes are made to codes, rules, and forms every January and every July.  The author monitors those changes well before they are implemented, and has often been involved in the changes themselves [see comment matrix].  Nine times out of ten, those changes affect the accuracy of Litigation By The Numbers®.

Every legal professional needs to keep up on current rules!

  • Do not purchase any procedural guide without first checking when it was last updated and how often it will be updated.
  • Make sure it’s updated twice yearly, and that changes go out before they go into effect.
  • Make sure the revisions highlight  key changes. 

Our LBTN Update Service does all that and more.  See the January 2011 Update Service cover memo.

For less than $7.00 per month our Update Service ensures that your copy has the latest rules, codes, and forms – so it remains as up-to-date as it was on the date of your initial purchase. Customers who initially purchased their books as far back as 2003, and have continuously subscribed to the Update Service, rely on the same material being sold today!

Update Service vs. e-Update Service

The Update Service is for customers who wish to keep their hard copies up to date. They receive a PDF of the updated pages only to print and place in their book along with a cover memo describing the changes. The e-Update Service is for customers who have the digital version. They receive a PDF of the entire book as revised along with a cover memo describing the changes. 

Initial Cost, Recurring Charges, and Cancellation

The Update Service, regardless of format, is $80/year. Subscriptions are initially set up for recurring automatic credit card charge. An email is sent five days prior to the charge date. If you do not want recurring automatic credit card charges, then you’ll need to subscribe and then email us requesting that we switch you to manual billing. In that case, five days prior to the date your payment is due, you will receive a single notice to make the payment. Subscribers may access their account online and cancel at any time.

How We Notify Subscribers About Updates

We notify active subscribers via email when an Update is available for download. It is the subscriber’s responsibility to ensure that their email address on file is current.  

How to Get Back Hard Copy Updates

The last two hard copy Updates may be purchased for download. If you are missing more than two Updates, your book is too old to update. (We sell current materials and only go backward as a courtesy.) Please if you are in this situation, buy a new book (preferably PDF) and subscribe to the  Update Service so this does not happen again.
