Why you should attend:

Legal project management is quickly becoming a critical way of doing business in law firms and legal departments. Lawyers are learning to implement project management principles in order to better plan, organize, and supervise projects while enhancing client service and relationships, minimizing risk and enhancing profitability and the management of legal costs. In just a few years, legal organizations have moved from questioning the need for project management principles in their work, to applying it to many aspects of how they manage their work.

This program will take the foundational elements covered in the past two years’ programs and show how they can apply to your law firm or legal department - with the examples of organizations who are using legal project management to transform themselves. You will learn about the latest developments in project management in the legal field, with lessons learned from law firms and legal departments about how to apply these techniques to improve efficiency, lower project costs, and increase overall results.

What you will learn:

  • Keys to successful implementation of legal project management principles
  • Experiences of legal organizations in getting buy-in, embarking on pilot projects, developing new metrics for success, and using project managers
  • How to build more accurate budgets using project management tools and processes

Mayer Brown partner Brad Peterson will speak on a panel titled “Applying Legal Project Management - A Case Study in Using LPM in Legal Organizations.”
