The Law Society of Singapore has partnered with LawVision LLC to extend the following 2 legal project management (LPM) e-learning programmes.
1. LPMAware™ (approximately 40 minutes)
LPMAware™ introduces the essential elements of LPM, providing legal professionals with a better understanding of how to integrate project management principles, skills, processes and behaviours into their management of legal matters on a day-to-day basis. The program provides an introduction to project management terminology and approaches used in the legal industry, giving professional staff the tools to communicate in a language that clients use in their businesses. It is designed around the key elements of LPM, not around a specific LPM framework. As such, it can be incorporated into any framework, whether your organization has one or not. It is intended to give all learners a baseline understanding of the key elements of legal project management. At the end of the program, you will receive a Certificate of Completion.
LPMAware™ Learning outcomes:
- Introduction to the essential elements of LPM
- Enhanced understanding of how to integrate project management principles, skills, processes and behaviors into the management of legal matters
- Greater awareness of LPM terminology and approaches
2. LPMLaunchPad™ (approximately 3 hours)
Applicable for 3 Private CPD points
LPMLaunchPad™ provides a simple, yet powerful framework for applying LPM techniques and approaches to your legal matters immediately and building more effective budgets. You learn using a case study based on actual legal matters.
- An understanding of all of the key legal project management concepts and how to talk to your clients credibly about them;
- Examples of how legal departments and law firms are implementing LPM for different types of practice areas;
- A skills-based approach to learning the fundamental LPM techniques such as stakeholder analysis, scoping of work, project plans and budgets, managing scope changes and conducting end-of-matter debriefs;
The primary elements of the programme include:

- Understanding the key decision-makers in the client who can affect the legal outcomes and success of a matter;
- Detailed “scoping” of work
- Breaking down the work into component parts to develop more accurate budgets and to be able to manage the work and the legal team efficiently and effectively;

- End of matter debriefing/lessons learned.
Upon completion of the online e-learning portion, you will receive a Certificate of Completion from The Law Society of Singapore.
