The 1-day Legal Project Management (LPM) training course reflects the unique needs and challenges of the legal profession & matter management. Wellingtone has authored this LPM training course specifically for fee earners, legal professionals and in-house legal teams. This is the only course of its kind to have been independently assessed and Accredited by the APM.

The UK legal sector is worth almost £26 billion, according to research commissioned by the Law Society. This headline masks the changing face of legal services and the demand for more efficient ways of working. New market entrants, demands from project management savvy clients and the shift to alternative fee arrangements, in particular fixed fees, all necessitate change in the industry. Those who embrace this change through best practice LPM will succeed, whereas firms that fail to equip themselves for the challenge will undoubtedly suffer.

Training Course Aligns With APM and PMI
