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 40 hours of online specialist training sessions and assessments. The full course fee is £499 for LAPG members and £649 for non-members, which covers online course work, training materials and text books (including the LAG Legal Aid Handbook).
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.
