On-Site Training Events

My legal project management on-site training is tailored to your specific requirements.

Usually most of the tailoring is about creating a realistic legal scenario which is familiar to you and your team, as this helps place legal project management principles in context.

Outlined below are the on-site training events I get asked to deliver most often.

All of my events include workshops and exercises as this is the best way for people to appreciate legal project management in practice.

Short Workshops for Partners and Senior Managers

These tend to be workshops of between one and two hours duration.

The idea behind the workshops is to give participants a feel for what it is like to apply key project management principles to legal matters and to generate discussion about how legal project management might work in their practice area.

Typical content includes:

  1. Introduction: The International Institute of Legal Project Management (IILPM) 4-Phase LPM Framework (please see below).
  2. Exercise: Matter Scoping
  3. Exercise: Risk Management
  4. Exercise: Client Communications
  5. Discussion: Implementing legal project management.

Half-Day Course for Practising Solicitors

This course is designed to help practising solicitors comply with the requirements of the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s Competence Statement for Solicitors.

Section D of the Competence Statement provides that solicitors must demonstrate they can

“Initiate, plan, prioritise and manage work activities and projects to ensure that they are completed efficiently, on time and to an appropriate standard, both in relation to their own work and work that they lead or supervise, including

  1. Clarifying instructions so as to agree the scope and objectives of the work
  2. Taking into account the availability of resources in initiating work activities
  3. Meeting timescales, resource requirements and budgets
  4. Monitoring, and keeping other people informed of, progress
  5. Dealing effectively with unforeseen circumstances
  6. Paying appropriate attention to detail”


Hence this half day course provides an introduction to the project tasks referred to in Section D of the SRA’s Competence Statement for Solicitors:

  1. Introduction: The International Institute of Legal Project Management (IILPM) 4-Phase LPM Framework (please see below).
  2. Matter Definition (including high level scoping, resourcing and communication planning).
  3. Risk Management.
  4. Building a Delivery Schedule.
  5. Managing the Delivery Schedule.
  6. Effective Communications.

Two-Day Course Leading to Certification in Legal Project Management

Organisations wanting to provide their staff with training leading to internationally recognised certification awarded by the International Institute of Legal Project Management (IILPM) tend ask me to deliver a two-day course.  (IILPM certifications can be awarded only after two or three days training from an IILPM accredited trainer).

At the end of two days all attendees are then eligible to be awarded the certification of Legal Project Associate (LPA) by the IILPM.

Detailed course structure and content will reflect your requirements, provided topics covered are contained within the IILPM 4-Phase LPM Framework.

IILPM 4-Phase LPM Framework

The two-day course is based on the IILPM’s 4-Phase LPM Framework.

This Framework begins by focusing on essential project management concepts and techniques, and then goes on to cover much more.

The result is a holistic approach to legal service delivery.

Course Content

Key items from each of the 4-Phases with reference productivity techniques and effective team leadership.

Course Deliverables

  1. Background notes covering all topics referred to in each phase of the Framework.
  2. IILPM approved Templates which can be used to execute key legal project management tasks.
  3. Practical workshops and exercises to help students understand key concepts and develop their legal project management skills.
  4. Post course follow-up: few things are as frustrating as completing a course full of new ideas and enthusiasm, only to find when you return to work course notes get filed away as the daily demands of job take over again.  I am really keen that course graduates get to apply legal project management after training.  With this in mind I keep in touch with all course graduates.  I also offer course graduates three hours of free consultancy advice (via telephone or skype). I find the people who take up this offer are usually those charged with implementing legal project management in their organisation.  Some people continue the consultations, which become chargeable after the three hours.

Training Schedule

I can deliver the two-day course either in two consecutive days, two full days or four half days over a period of weeks – whatever works best for you and your team.

Training Location

Obviously, for ‘on-site’ training the default location is where the relevant legal teams work.  I have delivered training at client sites in the U.K and the European mainland.

One thing I would note is that I have found there can sometimes be significant student distraction during on-site training.  This clearly has potential to limit the effectiveness of the training. With this in mind, I would be happy to identify and book a neutral venue close to your office if you think this a good idea.

Legal Project Associate Certification

After completing two days training, all trainees are eligible to be awarded the certification of Legal Project Associate (LPA) by the International Institute of Legal Project Management (IILPM).
