About the Seminar
Ready to make the switch from reactive to proactive case or matter management? Legal project management is a best-practices approach for scoping, planning, executing, and controlling legal work, given the constraints of time, budget, and performance requirements.

This practical and straightforward program covers a variety of methods and tools to assist in delivering legal services more efficiently and profitably. It also explores how LPM helps legal professionals adhere naturally to many South Carolina Rules of Professional Conduct.

Whether your firm or organization manages litigation or transactional matters, join us as we explore the three major project management philosophies — predictive, agile, and hybrid — and dive into hot topics such as communications planning, avoiding scope creep, case estimating techniques, quality management, risk management, capturing lessons learned and much more.

 

Included Sessions:
Project Management for the Legal Profession: Session I - The Predictive/Waterfall Method
Project Management for the Legal Profession, Session II: The Agile/Scrum Method
