New Year, New Career

The New Year is often associated with new beginnings – and for some, this means a new career.

January has long been the most popular month for job and career changes. Perhaps it is the break from work, or that fact that Christmas and New Year is a time for reflection. Whatever the reason, if you are hoping to find a new role this January, then you are not alone.

New Year, New Career

But while you may have decided that you want a new challenge, do you know exactly what it is that you want to do? If not, have you considered personal injury law?

How about personal injury law?

Working in personal injury has a raft of benefits. You get to apply your brain. You are always learning and no two days are the same. Best of all, you get to help victims of personal injury recover the compensation they rightfully deserve.

In some instances, this can improve safety and practice, ensuring others do not suffer the same fate. So, not only have you made a difference to the lives of your clients and their loved ones, you have also protected others from harm.

How to get started in personal injury law

If you would like to move into personal injury law, then your next steps will depend on whether or not you are already a solicitor.

If you have already qualified, then we recommend taking our Beginner’s Guide to Personal Injury Claims course. You may also benefit from our Diploma in Personal Injury, which is a year-long course, at the end of which you will have a nationally recognised Diploma.

Together, these will give you a solid understanding of personal injury law and the way in which personal injury claims work. This will give you a good foothold from which to start practicing personal injury law.

If you are not yet qualified, then you have various options available. If you want to become a solicitor then you need to take a law conversion course and complete your Legal Practice Course (LPC). If you have a law degree then a law conversion course is not necessary.

Alternatively, you could start your career as a paralegal. A paralegal carries out legal work, but does not have formal qualifications like solicitors, barristers and legal executives do. If this is of interest to you, we run a Paralegal Apprenticeship Programme. It takes two years to complete and you can work and study at the same time.

Therefore there are options available to you – it’s just up to you to take the first step.

    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
