Solicitors training

This course is specifically designed for solicitors involved with brain injury cases. Offering training is part of our ongoing commitment to raise awareness of the challenges faced by brain injury survivors and their families.

We have introduced a new programme for our Solicitors Training course and recommend all solicitors, new and returning, listed in the Head Injury Solicitors Directory to attend. The programme for the course includes sessions on information gathering techniques and the hidden effects of brain injury as well as personal perspective session.
