E-learning

This highly interactive e-learning course is a must for improving the efficiency of junior solicitors, legal executives, paralegals and claims handlers working on trips and slips cases. Huge time pressure and squeezed margins (on both the claimant and the defendant side) mean that running or defending the wrong claims is a waste of time and money. Making the right decisions on liability is more crucial than ever, and our training will give your staff the knowledge, skills and confidence to get them right. This e-learning is a cost-effective way to train large numbers of staff so they have a consistent approach to investigating claims and assessing liability.
