Legal Project Management Roundtable

The LPM Roundtable is the only organization dedicated solely to the professional development of the legal project management role, including networking and sharing best practices. Also, members can gain insight from LawVision consultants who have experience helping dozens of major firms with their LPM initiatives. All discussions are confidential to the Roundtable members.

Professional DevelopmentProfessional training and development are crucial for most law firms. Many of your firm professionals belong to groups that provide training to non-legal roles, such as the Legal Marketing Association and the Professional Development Consortium. This Roundtable also offers regular training and education, supporting the essential contributions these critical roles make to the continued profitability and success of your firm.

Sharing of Best Practices: Roundtable members frequently tell us that they highly value sharing best practices gleaned from the real-life implementation of LPM programs and tools. The Roundtable’s goal is to bring together individuals in similar roles to share ideas and experiences in their positions, participate in interactive presentations led by guest speakers, and discuss the “best practices” their firms are implementing. Click here for recent meeting agendas.  Some topics of interest suggested by our members for 2024 are:

  • LPM tools and technologies
  • Emotional intelligence skills
  • Change management
  • Client-facing issues and opportunities
  • Driving and measuring lawyer adoption
  • Case studies of law firms’ and law departments’ implementation of LPM, and
  • After action reviews/matter debriefs.

Ideas You Can Leverage in Your Firm: Besides the gems of information from others who have been there and done that, you will also benefit from:

  • Meeting materials and handouts, including speaker presentations
  • Access to the LPM Roundtable member portal, including past meeting materials and recordings
  • Between meetings, member communication using our private LPM Roundtable LinkedIn page.

Peer Networking Opportunities: During each session, attendees can build their professional network. The break-out sessions provide a chance to meet others in similar roles while sharing ideas, challenges, and approaches. You will learn as much from what works as you do from what does not.

  • One hybrid meeting (offering in-person and virtual participation):  A full-day meeting with a reception
  • Three virtual meetings: These will continue in the format used during the pandemic and allow participation without the cost of travel
  • Core content-focused meetings: Each meeting will have a primary focus such as the topics suggested above. Break-out discussions will be a mix of problem-solving discussion, topic-based, and role-based.
  • First ever “LPM Bootcamp” for those new to LPM roles – This will be a separate session with “veteran” LPMs sharing tips for success with those new to the roles.
  • Unlimited firm/team member attendance: Each firm’s membership dues permit access to all firm/team members in their geography at each virtual meeting, in addition to the private portal of past meeting materials and more. Contact Eva Booth at eva.booth@lawvision.com for more information if you want to expand your membership.
  • Global learning and networking: Virtual meetings benefit from international exposure at all the sessions. Members participate from North America, United Kingdom, Europe, EMEA and Australia. The LPM Roundtable will continue to have virtual meetings that span regions.  You will have the opportunity to share with global LPM leaders, select the timing that fits your schedule, or participate in both.

  • Access to the LinkedIn LPM Roundtable group

All meetings will be designed to include facilitated conversations based on topics suggested by the members. The in-person/hybrid meetings will include a professional development segment to be presented by a well-known authority on relevant topics for the members’ roles. Time will also be built for Roundtable sharing among members on issues of specific interest to the members. The hybrid roundtable meetings will be one day, plus a reception the night before or after the meeting. The Legal Project Management Roundtable hybrid meeting meets on a consecutive day with the Legal Pricing Roundtable hybrid meeting, and the two groups have the reception together. There is a significant overlap in membership between the two groups.
