Personal Injury Claims: Essential Skills

Personal Injury Claims: Essential Skills - a 1-day training course by Kaplan Altior

This intensive training day will provide personal injury lawyers with a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to the skills needed for them to be successful in litigation. The course covers vital practice areas which delegates are unlikely to have covered in depth on the LPC and yet which are very crucial on a practical level when conducting a personal injury claim. The course is highly interactive, featuring a case study and examples which will allow participants to develop their understanding of bringing a personal injury claim.

This course is especially popular with both trainee solicitors looking to develop new skills and with qualified solicitors who either want to brush up on their skills or are moving into new areas of legal practice.
