Develop your skills and knowledge online
The preference of International Institute of Legal Project Management (IILPM) Authorised Training Providers (ATPs) is to deliver training in person. This allows us to do things such as run in-training workshops and facilitate group discussion leading to rich learning outcomes.
However Covid-19 has clearly changed many things. One of the most noticeable changes is the way that lawyers and other professionals have quickly adapted to working from home. In tandem with this there has been an increased demand for legal project management training online.
I am servicing this demand in four ways.
- Live online certification training via Zoom.
- Shorter non-certification courses via Zoom, which are usually taken by legal service teams in law firms and in-house legal departments.
- Development IILPM certification courses ‘on-demand’ online.
- Making available a free ‘on-demand’ online introductory course about legal project management.
Live Online LPM Training and Certification Via Zoom
Responding to demand, I have started to run legal project management certification training course live online via Zoom.
Course content and course deliverables is the same as my public face to face courses (which are currently suspended due to Covid-19).
There are still workshops and exercises and attendees receive a full set of IILPM approved legal project management templates along with course notes.
If you attend the first two days of training you will become eligible for the IILPM certification of Legal Project Associate (LPA).
If you attend all three days of training, and you meet the pre-requisite of having worked-in or provided consultancy services to, the legal services industry for one year you will become eligible for the IILPM certification of Legal Project Practitioner (LPP).
You can download a copy of the Zoom course prospectus by clicking on the image above.
I will send you the pre-course material and Zoom link to the course by email a week before the course commences.
Please note that I obviously can not be held responsible for any connectivity issues you may experience whilst on the course. Hence before signing up for the course, please do ensure that you have a stable connection to the internet.

Legal Project Management Training Online For Legal Service Teams
Typically this training tends to be relatively short and, as a starting point, has similarities to my on-site training courses for partners and other fee earners.
I have found that with live online training, most people tend to prefer sessions of around 90 minutes each so we usually schedule several sessions to make sure all topics are covered.
As with my face to face on-site training, this training often results in a blended mix of an explanation of key legal project management concepts along with covering specific areas of interest to each team.
In reality, this kind of training often morphs into more focused consultancy work aimed at helping teams overcome particular issues by the application of legal project management and legal process improvement.
Over the last few years I have, at the request of law firms, devised and delivered training courses aimed specifically at senior associates who show potential to become partners.
