Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme (CICS) is a government funded scheme which serves to compensate victims of violent crime. It also represents a growth area for many PI practitioners seeking to increase their revenue stream in the post-Jackson era. This course is essential viewing for those who would like to expand their area of expertise and wish to add handling applications for compensation through the CICS to their case load.
This course is aimed at solicitors with little or no knowledge of this specialist area of PI practice and will provide practitioners with an overview of the CICS process, guidance on eligibility rules, how to make an application, how to pursue a claim under the compensation scheme and how to challenge a decision made by the CICA.
This course will also be of interest to trainee solicitors, legal executives and paralegals who wish to increase their knowledge of this area of law and ultimately advise clients in their own right.
