Overview (Program Summary)
Many in-house lawyers have to work on large legal projects and manage law firms as part of their role. However, most have never had any formal training in project or vendor management.
Adherence to timescales and budget are key when managing legal projects. There are some simple principles, processes and soft skills which can be applied in order to stay in control.
In this session, Neil Willson (Head of Consulting, Kalexius) and Rebekah Farmer (Legal Project Manager) will cover:-
- The basic principles of project management;
- What you should ask your panel law firms to provide;
- How to ensure there are clearly defined deliverables and costs.
