Paralegals Are the Project Managers of the 21st Century


Each case is its own project.

A project is a temporary, non-routine endeavor limited by scope, time, and cost that creates a unique product, service, or result. Projects have a start and an end and they are unique. Whether you are drafting a motion, performing research, working on discovery, or a trial –all of these are projects or sub-projects of a larger case. This white paper reviews how using project management principles helps get work done more effectively and more efficiently.
