Discover our globally-recognised certifications

Legal Project Associate™ (LPA)

The LPA certification recognises a person with introductory knowledge about Legal Project Management, who can work on the legal matter project team (i.e. a legal project team member – not the legal project manager).

Legal Project Practitioner™ (LPP)

The LPP recognises a person with practitioner level knowledge about Legal Project Management, who can lead legal matters as a legal project manager. This is the premier global certification for a legal project manager.

Legal Process Improvement Professional™ (LPIP)

The LPIP certification recognises a person with process improvement knowledge and expertise to assist in the process improvement, on both the legal practice processes (legal operations-based projects) and legal matter processes (legal matters).

The value that adds up – Our Community’s speaking

The Legal Project Management (LPM) training was transformative and enriching. From day one, we learned tools and techniques that allow us to improve efficiency and effectiveness in managing our projects. Because the training was interactive and practical, featuring case studies and simulations, we were able to see how LPM can impact the quality of project outcomes. This difference generates greater value for our organization and delivers more value to our internal clients.

Legal Team Hispanoamérica


The Legal Project Management course has been an invaluable addition to our professional toolkit. It has not only enriched our knowledge but also instilled a greater sense of confidence in managing legal projects. We are genuinely thankful for the opportunity to have participated in this course. We wholeheartedly recommend this course to any legal professional seeking to enhance their project management skills and to those aspiring to bring about positive change in their legal practice.

Legal Team

Repsol, España

As a lawyer, I have always felt the need for a renewal of legal practice to improve the management of legal matters. Through the Legal Project Practitioner course, I gained new knowledge and a working method that meets this need. Thanks to the IILPM certification, I was able to assert my qualities and successfully export my skills, receiving significant recognition from my company. My support has improved the corporate approach to legal issues and optimized internal resources.
