State Journal (WV);5/10/2013, Vol. 29 Issue 19, p21
The authors reflect on the influence of legal project management on the practice of law in the U.S. They note the engagement of lawyers in project management as the lawyers evaluate the prevailing likelihood, possible recovery, and required effort. They contend that it tends to become a basic element of case analysis that is always present without formal name. They consider it to reflect frankness and openness that is required from lawyers in staffing and budgeting.
