Whether you’re running a large legal firm with a lengthy history or have recently set up a small independent operation, having an experienced team can make all the difference between success and failure. But it’s easy to fall into the trap of believing that experience alone is all that you need to excel, and this is rarely the case. Incorporating regular training into your strategy can produce even greater results.

Why train?

There are many reasons why undertaking extra legal training can produce benefits for your business. For one thing, law is undeniably changing all the time, and is in a constant state of evolution. Formalised and structured legal training is the most effective means of ensuring that your whole team, or at least those who need to be, are on the same and most current page with regards to a specific area of law. In the case of relatively new fields such as personal injury law, staying up to date with current developments is often even more important.

But there’s also the human factor to consider. Over long spans of time people’s skills can become somewhat dulled and their knowledge dimmed a little, through no fault of their own. Therefore training at regular intervals can help them to stay sharp and constantly refresh and reinvigorate their abilities for their own good as well as the company’s.

Boosting performance levels with additional legal training

Investing in in-house legal training can also boost the performance of your team as a whole, as well as the individuals who make it up. In everyday working life people can become blinkered in completing the task in front of them and absorbed in their own role. Group training activities can help to build greater team cohesion by placing people in different circumstances, in which they must engage more fully with team members who they might not normally interact with to any great degree. This in itself, and the perception that the company values its employees enough to develop them, can work wonders for morale in the short and long-term.

Accredited legal training courses will also count towards their required CPD points, enabling staff to focus on the job in hand without worrying about how they’re going to meet this year’s quota.

Strengthen existing skills and bring in new ones

It’s important to remember that even in teams made up of highly experienced individuals it is possible for knowledge gaps to exist, or for underperformance to occur in certain areas. Identifying these weak points and then organising relevant legal training can potentially make a huge difference in performance levels and success rates.

Finally, training can bring new skills and knowledge to the firm, enabling it to grow further and expand its client base. Personal injury training is one area in particular which many firms are investing in at the moment, due to its relative newness and the fact that the market for PI services is growing rapidly.

In short, with the right experience and the right training, your team could be unstoppable.

    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.
