Lawyers and other legal professionals can now earn Legal Project Management (LPM) certification online courtesy of a newly launched e-learning program. The program was developed by LawVision Group and seeks to enable legal professionals to attain lucid and measurable competence and efficiency improvements in their legal work. Additionally, the program, which is divided into two courses, is meant to enhance the legal professionals’ budgeting abilities, their ability to predict costs, and their ability to manage the costs and fees involved in the legal work.
According to one of the program’s lead developers, Susan R. Lambreth, the e-learning program was developed in response to the intense pressure placed on law firms by clients, regarding issues of efficiency and productivity. Specifically, Lambreth noted that LPM has become a key priority area for major law firms who are under pressure to serve their clients successfully and satisfactorily.
The e-learning program is set to act as an alternative course to the two-day certificate workshops hosted by LawVision in specific physical venues. Notably, the e- learning programs are advantageous over the workshops since they are flexible, intensive and cost-effective. In other words, lawyers can participate in the e-courses without having to waste time and resources traveling to designated physical addresses. Moreover, lawyers and other professionals can participate in the courses from different locations, using mobile or computer devices of their own choice, and at a pace that each individual is comfortable with.
To ensure that the e-program is leveraged like any other learning project, LawVision has built the courses on a modern e-learning platform similar to what is used by Universities and major corporations. Consequently, legal professionals who participate in the program are set to take part in interactive exercises, case studies, and counsel interviews, just as they would in a physical class. In the end, and in order to gauge their comprehension of concepts taught during training, the legal professionals will be required to sit for a final assessment. Those who take a single course are set to get a certificate indicating their completion, while those who take the two courses are set to receive certification in LPM. Certification is however dependent on whether one gets a passing grade during assessment.
