5 Ways to Make the Most of Your Legal Training

Make the most out of your legal training courses by following these five top tips –

Decide your goals

Decide what you want to get out of your legal training course. Is it to get to grips with the basics of a new subject? Is it to build on the knowledge you already have? Or is it to clarify issues you do not understand? 5 Ways to Make the Most of Your Legal Training

Once you have set your goals, it will enable you to choose right legal training course for you. You can then interact with the training session with your goals in mind, ensuring you achieve exactly what you set out to do.

There is nothing more disappointing than getting to the end of a training course and feeling like you have not learned anything new. Avoid this by carefully choosing your training course. If the trainer does not appear to be covering the subjects you had hoped, or you need further clarification, simply ask!

Prepare some questions

With this in mind, it is a good idea to prepare some questions before the training course. The aim is that these questions will be answered by the end of the session. As mentioned above, if the trainer does not fully answer one of your questions, do not be afraid to ask – either during the session itself, or during one of the breaks.

Deploy your learning style

Everyone has a different learning style. Some people prefer simply to listen, some people need to write things down, while others have to put their learning into action. At MASS Training we have adapted our legal training courses to account for these different learning styles.

Even so, it is best if you acknowledge what your preferred learning style is and engage with it. For instance, if you are given a handout with all the information on, you might know that you will not retain this information unless you make your own notes. If so, appreciate that this is the best way for you to learn and do it!

Reflect on your new knowledge

After a legal training course, it is tempting to rush back to the office or back home, where a number of things are waiting to distract you. The result is that everything you have just been learning about slips from your mind.

So if possible, stop to reflect on the things you have learned. What did you take away from the course? What impact does this have on your legal practice? Can you incorporate this knowledge into your job? If so, how?

Incorporate the training into your work

Following on from this, the next step is naturally to implement the things you have learned. It is all too easy to say: “well that was an interesting training course, now I’m going to file my notes away and get on with my work.” Instead, put your training into practice!

    What Our Clients Say

    The problem when attending any personal injury legal training course is knowing whether you are actually going to learn anything new or find a different perspective, or whether you will just hear the same things that you have heard many, many times before.

    The good news with MASS Training is that you know it is always going to be the former case. MASS’ courses are practical, informative and excellent value for money. My staff always come back feeling inspired and energised by having their existing knowledge and expertise confirmed, but also by picking up some new practical steps that they can immediately implement to make them more efficient in their day to day tasks.

    I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending MASS Training to anyone looking for Personal Injury Training. It is the best training available.

    MASS Training provide excellent content. The fact that they are in the main practising solicitors or legal executives means that not only do they fully understand their specialist subject matter, but they also know how to use this knowledge in the day to day running of their case load.

    If they are not currently running a course covering the area of law that they are interested I know that if I suggest it to them they will be happy to prepare a course for us either in-house or generally within a matter of weeks.

    We have in the past, and continue to, send our staff on the MASS Diploma Course, an excellent opportunity to develop essential skills and understanding for running RTA matters. If you are not yet ensuring your staff attend MASS Training courses, you are missing out on some of the best Personal Injury Training available.

    Very informative. Easy to understand. Not a typical course which you can easily lose concentration

    Thoroughly enjoyed it! It was both informative and practical, the fact it was quite hands on and interactive made the subject matter come to life and the topic elements sink in to some sort of structure! I feel like I actually understand some of the fundamental elements
