Finz California Case Law Monthly Updates

Audio program! (check our CLE Programs page for live versions)

With Finz Case Law Updates, you stay current on the latest published appellate opinions in California covering Torts and Employment law.

Started in 1992, Finz is one of the most respected case summary services in operation in California.

Finz Case Law Updates captures the most important recently published appellate cases from the prior month and reviews, analyzes and summarizes them in an audio format. The analysis includes a discussion about how the newly published case impacts existing case law and statues and the potential impact on your practice and clients as well.

In only one hour, Finz gives you what you need to argue and settle your cases with the most current case law in California. You stay ahead of the game, ahead of opposing counsel, and Finz makes sure you are not surprised by the other side.

As an added benefit, you can also claim one California CLE credit per issue, so that’s 12 CLE units per year for only $479 per year! And for those of you that are Certified Specialists in Appellate Law, Finz is approved for California Certified Specialist CLE in Appellate Law as well.

What’s more, subscribers receive a 10% discount on all Pincus Professional Education seminars (which pays for Finz entirely pretty quickly when you purchase Pincus programs).

Finz is available as a monthly download or CD. 

What You Will Learn

Our monthly case law updates cover the prior month’s most important published cases related to Torts and Employment law.

Each issue includes a printed case list, with citations to the cases discussed, as well as citations to any prior case law or statutes discussed in the analysis.



“For any practicing trial lawyer there are many demands of our time and not enough hours in the day. The Finz’s audio tapes provides the opportunity to stay current and knowledgeable. Nearly every month there is at least one item that has a direct input on some case that I am handling. For many years this has been part of my practice.”   John Girardi, Esq., Girarid | Keese
