THE REQUIREMENTS OF CPD FOR LEGAL PROFESSIONALS

One of the good things about working in the legal sector is that it gives you the chance to keep moving forward and learning new things throughout your career. Though a certain amount of training and additional activities are essential to meet your CPD (continuing professional development) requirements, you are in large part able to choose your own route of development and identify what areas you wish to focus on.

Current requirements state that all UK lawyers and solicitors who are working on a full-time basis must complete at least 16 hours of CPD every year. These hours may be spread between accredited training courses and a variety of other activities. However, at least 25% (four) of these hours must be gained from accredited courses.
Sometimes your natural instinct may be to undertake any type of training simply to satisfy these requirements, regardless of subject matter or wider relevance to your career. But it’s important to remember that although such training is mandatory, it also offers you a superb chance to expand your knowledge and to take your career in new and lucrative directions.

Why Choose Personal Injury Training To Help You Meet CPD Requirements

One field that a growing number of legal professionals are choosing to train in is personal injury law. Some may choose to specialise in it while others may simply wish to add another string to their bow. Either way, personal injury training gives them the skills and knowledge they need to expand their practice or develop their career.
Every year thousands of people in the UK are injured in accidents that were not their fault. Such accidents take on many forms and occur on the road, in the workplace, in public spaces and other locations. Each of them have one thing in common though – a person who has been wronged seeking compensation to put things right, and often to help them rebuild their life.

By undertaking personal injury litigation training you can not only go some way towards meeting your annual CPD requirements, but you can help these people to get the justice and the financial compensation they deserve. At the same time you can tap into a steady additional income stream – something that’s crucial in today’s fragile economic climate.

Improve Your Career Prospects With Personal Injury Training

If you’re currently searching for a job with a law firm, personal injury training can help you to improve your job prospects considerably. Whatever stage of your career you’re at, if you have knowledge and experience of personal injury law it can mean the difference between you and the person sitting next to you getting that all important job offer.

As you can see, there are many benefits in choosing to undertake personal injury training, not least the fact that it can count towards your CPD requirements. What’s more, if you’ve been looking for a new avenue to go down or a fresh direction in which to take your legal career, it may be just what you have been searching for.
