A Hands-on Workshop on Creating a Project Charter
Legal project failures are insidious because they’re not necessarily measured in bad outcomes but in rework, write-offs, overbilling, dissatisfied clients, and frustrated lawyers and staff. Project failures speak directly to a firm’s bottom line, from profitability to client relationships.
Legal marketers, administrators, and lawyers will benefit from this session, which not only examines the business case for legal project management, but also provides a hands-on demonstration of the practical technique that delivers that business case – the project charter.
Learn about the nine elements you need to define or clarify in the earliest stages of a legal project (case, file, matter). Understand some of the hidden traps that can lead to costly issues as the project proceeds – and discover some straightforward steps lawyers can take to avoid them and increase the success quotient on legal projects.
Presenter Steven B. Levy is the author of the groundbreaking book that defined the subject, Legal Project Management. He is an engaging speaker who has taught the subject to firms, law departments, and government agencies around the world.
