M. Lazard established a correspondence between finite -groups of nilpotence class less than p and finite nilpotent Lie rings of -power order and nilpotence class less than . This correspondence has had many applications, but cannot generally be extended to -groups of class or larger. However, in this paper, we obtain a partial extension of Lazard's result for a -group that is a product of normal subgroups of class less than .
