On April 16h, the American Bar Association will host a webinar introducing legal-project management.
Title: "Mastering the Move to Legal Project Management"
Format/Location: On-line webinar.
Cost: Free to ABA members. ABA membership required.
Organizations: PMI Legal Project Management Community of Practice
Legal project management (LPM) is gaining widespread momentum as a powerful "win-win" approach to improving legal service delivery: it produces efficiencies that improve firms' bottom lines while satisfying clients by better controlling outside legal spending. As LPM gains traction in firms of all sizes, its implementation remains a challenge for law firms and in-house legal departments alike.
This program, led by noted LPM pioneers and innovators, will teach you what all the buzz is about, how you can join the LPM revolution quickly and effectively, and how law firms and clients can build powerful collaborative working alliances. Speakers will share their experiences and answer your questions, including how LPM supports effective selection of outside counsel and how it can help firms meet client demands for greater efficiency and predictability of spending.
