Litigation Project Management 301 (LPM 301)

Instructor: Kate Austin, paralegal, Nathanson Schacther Thompson LLP and Dom Bautista, executive director Law Courts Center

Regardless of which practice area you belong to, the complexity of litigation files require a litigation project management “LPM” system. LPM is about defining objectives; creating a list of achievable goals and timelines within the confines of the rules of court; and managing the communication not only with the other parties but with your legal team too. It is also about managing change.
