Courses and Decisions

We aim to help claims management companies and legal service providers improve their service. We do this through our training courses, videos and regular feedback.

You can also get more information about our ombudsman decisions and complaints data here.

Professional learning courses

Led by our ombudsmen, our courses focus on first tier complaints handling and best practice. We aim to help service providers understand the Legal Ombudsman’s investigation process and how to introduce different aspects of complaint handling and customer care. We do this using a combination of case studies, Q&A and presentations.

Details will appear on this page when new course dates are set but for further information about courses please email:

These courses are free to attend and are available to professionals who work for a company/firm regulated under the Legal Services Act.
