Law Courses for People with No Legal Training

If you have no legal training, or a member of your staff does not have a legal background, MASS Training can help.

While we have a range of courses for fee earners who have been working in personal injury law for a long time, we also have legal training courses for those who are new to the profession. So, if you would like to get up to scratch on personal injury law, and fast, please do not hesitate to contact us to find out more.

Legal training for those new to the profession

It is not unusual for people to join law firms without any kind of legal training. Some may be employed as Law Courses for People with No Legal Trainingsecretaries, receptionists or in other capacities, but will progress to become paralegals or assistants. And yet while they may have the transferrable skills to succeed in such roles, they have never actually had any formal legal training.

If this sounds like a familiar scenario, then MASS Training can help. Our legal training courses are not just for those with a law degree, or who have been practicing the law for many years (although we do have courses for the ‘seasoned professional’). We also have law courses to suit those who are completely new personal injury law.

MASS Diploma

In fact, we have put several people through our MASS Diploma who did not have any legal training when they came to us. Our Diploma is provided in conjunction with the University of Law and involves six modules which are delivered over the course of a year. There is coursework to complete and a final exam to sit.

During the course, each stage of a personal injury claim is explored in detail. By the end of it, delegates will have the confidence to run their own caseload, something which can take many years to achieve without the right training. This makes the Diploma perfect for anyone who wants to learn the fundamentals of personal injury claims in a structured and thorough way.

No legal background? No problem

Along with our Diploma, we have other courses on offer to suit those who are new to the profession, such as the Beginner’s Guide to Personal Injury Law.

Therefore, even if you do not have a legal background, please do not be deterred from taking one of our courses. We offer a number of law courses that are suited to those without any formal legal training and can advise which would be the best match for you or your team member.

Putting yourself or a member of your team through a course can be great for morale. That individual will learn new skills (and maybe even gain a Diploma) and progress their career. It will also benefit the firm, as he/she is less likely to make mistakes and will be able to take on greater responsibilities.
