What’s the difference between a Legal PM and an EDPM?

Project Management is the buzz term for the start of this decade in the legal industry. A recent post from our Canadian friends at Slaw highlights the challenges of being a legal project manager in a fun way before they get to the reality of the role.

Is there a call for a standalone legal project manager position?

One could make a case that there are already project managers in place in e-discovery – and when there aren’t, there should be. That said, most of the e-discovery project managers I know are project managers in the Legal space rather than legal project managers.

In other words, they’re not managing legal cases (or matters or files) but rather managing one aspect of a case. That aspect is enormous, expensive, and complex, but it has a shape different from that the practice of Legal Project Management. E-discovery project management deals with a far greater level of certainties and knowable metrics than does capital-LPM Legal Project Management.
