Networking Opportunities at Your Legal Training Courses

Legal training courses are a time for learning and development. But they are also excellent opportunities to network!

Networking and legal training

When you attend an off-site training course, your primary objective is undoubtedly to enhance your knowledge-base and improve your legal practice. But there’s an added advantage to gathering in the same room with a group of like-minded peers, and it’s one that is often overlooked. We are of courseNetworking Opportunities at Your Legal Training Courses talking about networking.

You will have heard of (and maybe even attended) networking events – be it a business breakfast, lunch, or conference. With these, you know that you are attending with the intention of networking, and as such it can feel a little forced or overwhelming. The beauty of legal training days is that networking is so much more organic.

Remember, you are all there because of the training. There is no pressure to hand out your quota of business cards. Any connections that are made tend to arise naturally during group discussions, or over a cup of tea during the refreshment break. Yet these connections can turn out to be absolutely vital to your career.

Benefits of networking at legal training days


Well, there are many potential benefits of networking at legal training days. Some are immediately obvious, while others may not show their true value until a little later down the line.

Firstly, you can share anecdotes and advice. You might be struggling with a particular issue in one of your cases, or in your business. Quite often if you share this with a group of other personal injury practitioners, someone else will have had the same experience and can provide some useful hints to set you in the right direction.

This can be invaluable, as sometimes it can feel like you are working in isolation. This is especially true for those who do not have a team of personal injury practitioners to rely on, or for business owners/team leaders who have no authoritative figure to turn to when things get difficult.

Secondly, you never know when your new-found connections might come in useful. In the future, you might need to seek their expertise, perhaps because they have a particular area of specialism. Or you might be looking for a new job opportunity, or you might be looking to recruit a talented individual at your own firm.

Therefore when you attend a legal training course, you should not forget the value of networking. It should not be your primary concern – you are there to learn, after all! But be sure to speak to the other delegates, make a good impression and exchange business cards. You never know when it might come in handy.

    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
