Case Management Training for Lawyers

Active Case Management

Synopsis

A lively course for developing the skills and habits ("Think & Act") that are crucial to pressing on with matters, meeting clients' objectives and reducing the "shelf-life" of cases.

Outcomes

Depending on the work type, it is not uncommon for a lawyer to manage over a hundred active cases at anyone time.

While each case will be at a difference stage of legal proceedings, finding ways to be organised and efficient when managing them is critical.

On our course you will develop an assertive and disciplined approach to case management, including:

  • considering merits, costs, settlement and next steps at every opportunity
  • thinking and acting more commercially and strategically, always looking for the most effective routes for achieving each client's objectives
  • using the CPR to manage cases in accordance with each client's objectives
  • identifying opportunities to make applications and effective methods for resisting an opponent's approach
