Legal Project Management: A Case Study
Professional Development Workshop Series

Thursday, May 19, 2011 8:30 am-10:15 am

This program provides 2.0 Transitional/Non-Transitional NY CLE credits in Practice Management.

LEGAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT: A CASE STUDY MAY 19 In the changing face of today’s legal profession, the adoption of Legal Project Management (LPM) best practices by cutting edge law firms is materially improving their efficiency, work process management, communication, professional development of their lawyers and their working relationships with clients. Drawing on a case study, this program will address how instituting LPM transformed the way in which one large law firm managed diverse projects, communicated with clients, delivered legal services, and captured the learnings from completed engagements. The case study will describe the handling of sample legal matters before and after the application of LPM programs and how the changes impact associates in their daily roles. The program will also explain how the large law firm commenced its LPM initiative, obtained buy-in from crucial stakeholders and opinion leaders, and tailored LPM processes and best practices for its diverse practice groups.

Participants will learn:

  • LPM planning and implementation
  • The successes and challenges of implementing LPM
  • What lies ahead for associates as more firms commit to changing their legal service delivery model through the implementation of LPM
