This session is an overview of the essential elements of LPM and the practices or approaches used by leading firms. The session’s goal is to build buy-in, help participants understand LPM terminology, and provide a baseline of knowledge to enable effective communication with clients. The specific topics are tailored to the needs and preferences of each individual firm, but commonly include:

  • The business case for project management in law firms today − why it matters to clients and their law firms and how law firms are gaining competitive advantage through LPM;

  • Key project management concepts − what they mean and how to talk to clients about them;

  • Examples of leading law firm project management efforts; and

  • Understanding foundational project management tools and processes that the business world/law firm clients use and how they apply to legal work − project charter/scope of work agreements, budgets and work breakdown structures/templates and work plans.
