We offer three programs through which your legal professionals can become certified in Legal Project Management.

Certificate of Completion

By completing either of our online LPM courses, you receive a certificate of completion.   

LPM LaunchPad™  Certificate in Fundamentals of Legal Project Management

Through our two-day live course taught in your firm or in a public enrollment session or our online courses available, you can obtain the LPM LaunchPad™ Certificate in the Fundamentals of Legal Project Management from the LPM Institute.  

The online version of this convenient and affordable skills-based Certificate Program consists of  two online courses, which can be taken individually to earn a Certificate of Completion or together to earn the LPM LaunchPad™ Certificate in the Fundamentals of Legal Project Management. Both courses are in self-paced format and available online 24 X 7. They integrate case studies, interactive exercises, video commentary, General Counsel interviews, assessments and more to create a compelling learning experience that provides lawyers and other legal professionals with the skills they need to exceed client expectations.  In many jurisdictions, the courses will be eligible for CLE credit as well.

There are CLE and non-CLE versions of the courses, depending upon your preference or needs.  The courses can be taken by individuals or administered in a group setting in your law firm in a “lunch and learn” or other meeting format.  Group sessions can use a workbook so all participants can complete the activities and receive CLE credit.  

The courses are ideally suited for:

  • Practicing lawyers at all levels - partners, associates, counsel and career tracks
  • Experienced paralegals who are used to handling the details of legal matters
  • Practice management professionals – practice group business managers and others helping practice group leaders run their groups
