Legal Training – An Ongoing Process That Helps Your Career Move Forward!

Everyone knows the benefits of additional training. But in the legal profession, ongoing legal training is both required and essential if your career is to move forward. So how do you plan your legal training to make the most of new opportunities?

Legal training isn’t something that you do just to fulfil your CPD obligations on a yearly basis. It can be a huge boost to your career, showing that you are constantly trying to better your skills set and your ability to deliver a high quality service to both your employer and your clients. Taking on additional legal training shows initiative and a desire to improve your standards, and that can be as important as the training itself to your legal career.

Pick your legal training carefully

But before you sign up for any old additional training, consider carefully what kind of legal training will best improve your position. If you already specialise in one particular field and are intending to remain in that area, then target your legal training accordingly. For example, if your speciality is family law, then additional training in criminal procedure is unlikely to be of any major benefit except in certain circumstances. However, extra legal training in property law may enable you to expand into cases where property disputes are a key factor.

One of the biggest growth areas is in representation for clients involved in compensation claims. This has seen a massive boom over the past few years, as the public becomes more aware of ‘no win, no fee’ compensation thanks to extensive marketing. Additional legal training in this area can expand a firm’s repertoire considerably, allowing them to take on additional work in a range of areas. Undertaking additional training in compensation law can help both you and your firm to widen their field, making sure that you don’t miss out on an increasing marketplace.

Freshen up your legal career

Legal training can also keep you ‘fresh’ and interested in your career. If you feel that your legal career has stagnated then additional legal training can give you a confidence boost that can re-ignite your passion for the Law. A short legal training course could make you rethink your projections and direction, giving you a new path to follow that could lead to previously unconsidered opportunities.

It is also a chance to network, meeting like-minded people who have an interest in the same areas as you. Learning from your peers is as much a part of training as the formal aspect. Real life experience is just as important as studying books, and being part of a group that are all united in the sole purpose of learning new ways of doing things and how they can be applied in real life can give you the motivation you need to make a new career choice.

Finally, legal training can demonstrate to your employer that you are ready to take on additional responsibility and are ripe for promotion. For those who want to do more than just the bare minimum required CPD, additional legal training can also motivate those around you to start thinking about moving their careers forward as well. As they say, it’s a win/win situation!

    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.
