The Litigation Management Institute (LMI), as part of The Claims and Litigation Management Alliance (CLM), was hosted by Columbia Law School in New York from October 5 -7, 2012.
Students completed nearly 30 hours of pre-course reading, 18 hours of in-class instruction and nearly 12 hours of group project work. Given the rigorous nature of the program, the CLM was pleased to have 91 percent of participants successfully complete the program.
The LMI is the first program specifically designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the business of litigation management. The program consists of nine courses taught by executives with extensive industry experience.
