Put yourself in the shoes of a prospective employer. What would you look for in a candidate? Qualifications are absolutely vital; a good grounding from the LPC shows that you have mastered the relevant skills and have a good understanding of the core principles involved. Experience is another crucial factor, one that can swing a decision for or against you. However, this is a bit of a Catch 22 situation for newcomers into the legal profession. Without experience, you may find yourself without gainful employment and without gainful employment, how are you going to gain experience? This is where the world of personal injury training can really come into its own.

Training for Tomorrow

As a lawyer, it is compulsory to undertake at least 16 hours of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) training a year. Not only does this refresh your legal knowledge in an industry that has to adapt to change on an almost daily basis, but it gives you a greater understanding of your position in your company. However, without a job, can personal injury training give you any advantage in the job-market?

The answer is yes. By undertaking further legal training, the first thing you will signal to a prospective employer is your commitment to your chosen profession. Instead of resting on your laurels and relying on your qualifications, you are communicating your wish to be taken seriously. In addition, while others stagnate, your skills and knowledge will become greater and more dynamic, and the personal injury industry is one that revolves around change.

The Law is constantly being reviewed, updated and changed. By choosing to undertake further legal training, your knowledge will exceed those of your competitors and raise your profile in an employment situation. While it may be impressive to be able to recite a list of laws and legal precedents, it is equally unimpressive if they are outdated – a situation that can become a reality very quickly in the legal industry.


With competition being so fierce in the job market, those looking to launch themselves into the legal system, change jobs or simply maintain their reputation need to think seriously about personal injury training. In addition to showing your dedication and furnishing you with new knowledge, training can also bring you into direct contact with others in your position. There can be no better way to exchange ideas, make friends and discover new opportunities than to mix with those who want the same as you.

In today’s economic climate, employers look to hire on a long-term basis. Candidates are assessed as much on their potential as long-term assets as they are on their ability to do the job. By undertaking personal injury training at this stage in your career, you are telling your employer that you are prepared to take whatever steps are necessary to offer your employer your best. In an industry that is built on shifting sands, the adage that ‘there is no substitute for experience’ is no longer true.

Employers can assess you on your current activities as much as they can your past successes.

    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.
