Wed 02 Oct 2019

Headway’s Solicitors Training for 2019 has been awarded accreditation by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).

The training course, which is specifically designed for solicitors involved with brain injury cases, is part of Headway’s ongoing commitment to raise awareness of the unique challenges faced by survivors and their families.

The course is now accredited by APIL Training at litigator and senior litigator level for 4.5 Continuous Professional Development (CPD) hours.

Headway’s Director of Fundraising, Jo Plant, said: “It’s a great achievement for Headway’s Solicitors Training course to be awarded accreditation by APIL.

“It speaks volumes to the hard work and commitment from the charity’s side to ensure solicitors fully understand the complex nature of brain injury and its life-long effects.”

The programme for the course includes sessions on information gathering techniques and the hidden effects of brain injury, as well as a personal perspective session.

The next APIL accredited course will be delivered in London on 8 November.
