The Legal Project Associate™ certification, issued by the International Institute of Legal Project Management (IILPM), recognises a person with introductory knowledge about Legal Project Management and has the ability to either support legal matters or work in the legal matter project team (i.e., a legal project team member – not the legal project manager).
To apply for the LPA certification, an applicant is required to have completed the 2-day IILPM approved training course delivered by an IILPM Accredited Training Provider or the equivalent Applied Legal Project Management e-Learning course. In Sub-Saharan Africa, Avuka Training and Consulting is the only Accredited Training Provider and offers both, the instructor-led and e-Learning option.
The LPA certification is a pathway for those starting in the legal profession or new to legal project management. The LPA certification is not a prerequisite for the LPP, and the candidate can therefore continue their training at a later stage to gain the LPP certification, once they have met the LPP workplace prerequisites.
