Project management involves much more than how to define the scope of a project, plan activities, create timelines and manage budgets. Project managers must also possess strong leadership skills and have problem-solving experience, analytical, people and communication expertise. In this session, Michael Quartararo, the Director of Litigation Support Services at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP and the author of the 2016 book “Project Management in Electronic Discovery,” will elaborate on advanced project management competencies for paralegals, including the knowledge, talent and skills necessary to successfully lead e-discovery or any other legal project. Attendees will also participate in an interactive case study that examines recent legal precedents and how the application of project management principles may have impacted the outcome.
