Successfully piloted in 2015, the Certificate in Practice Management combines face-to-face training with online learning and materials to provide an accessible and affordable management training programme for busy lawyers and practice managers.
PLEASE NOTE: we are currently redesigning this course to cater for online delivery. We are also developing two versions of the course – one for not-for-profit advice agencies and one for private practice. Look out for news soon.

‘I would recommend the CPM to other people, especially people who are relatively new to management.’ (Newly qualified solicitor) ‘I really enjoyed it, I thought it was great.’ (Manager with over 10 years’ experience)
Almost 90% of employers said they noticed that their colleague had increased confidence after the course and 100% said their management skills had improved.
The course trainers include: Matthew Howgate, Vicky Ling and Jo Edwards.
The CPM provides 50 hours of specialist training including both active face-to-face sessions and online. The full course fee is £999 for LAPG members and £1,299 for non-members, which covers face-to-face and online course work, printed training materials, three text books (including the LAG Legal Aid Handbook), ‘grab and go’ guides, buffet lunches and refreshments.
Attend the whole course to receive the Certificate or each individual session as a discrete training course. Attending individual sessions also earns you credits towards the full Certificate if you need the flexibility to complete the Certificate over a longer period of time.
We have just concluded the 2019/20 course and are planning our 2021 course. At this stage the following sessions are designated dates for online events, but we may have to change the schedule to cater for the differences between online and face to face delivery.
Session 1: Financial and Resource Management – February 2021
Session 2: Business Planning and Risk Management – March 2021
Session 3: Legal Aid Contracting and Developing Profile – April 2021
Session 4: Managing People – May 2021
