Every single day, a flotilla of new legislation, laws, taxation policy and ‘guidelines’ sail forth from Government into the choppy waters of the business world. It can be almost impossible for business owners to stay on top of all this additional red tape and paperwork, and very difficult for their employees to ensure that these new requirements are being adhered to and implemented correctly. Although booklets explaining the implementations and potential repercussions accompany each new legal broadside, taking the time out to engage in a little bit of legal training can offer you a real boost. It can enable you to work more productively within the guidelines of the law and, potentially, to further your career as well.

Legal training – not just for legal beagles…

You don’t have to have studied for years and gained a law degree to benefit from legal training. Because of the vast expanse of the legal field, specialist training in specific areas such as taxation, import and export or even employment law is essential for a business to operate successfully and within legal frameworks. Having training in a specialist area can increase your skills set that can be transferred to other business areas or used to your advantage within your chosen field. Let’s take an example:

Employment law

Employment law is an incredibly complex area that all employees and employers should have a reasonable amount of familiarity with. Something as seemingly mundane as an employment contract is in fact a complex, legally binding document that has to be laid out precisely and adhered to absolutely. If your role within an organisation is as a personnel officer, you will need more than just ‘people skills’ to do your job effectively. This is where additional legal training can help. Taking time out to do additional legal training that is relevant to your role within an organisation can help you to do your job more efficiently, expand your skills set and ensure that the people working with you know they have someone to go to if they have a problem.

Worth the time and effort

Don’t be frightened by the thought of tackling legal training. A simple, basic understanding of the fundamentals of the Law can actually help to simplify situations that appear at first to be mired in red tape and unintelligible jargon. Just like learning another language, being taught the rudimentary basics of the Law as it applies to your position and role can develop into a new area of expertise, making you a much more desirable asset to your organisation.

You don’t have to go all out and go for a Law degree (unless you want to!). Specialist organisations work with businesses across the UK to bring them useable, understandable and relevant training that can act as a springboard to further, more detailed training. Who knows – you may find that you have an aptitude for legal training and that it develops a completely new direction for your career.

So if you are thinking about expanding your skills base through additional training, consider how legal training could help you and your organisation develop a better understanding of the basics, as well as improving efficiency. Legal training really is well worth the time and effort.

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.

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