Public Prosecution

Laura is a Grade 3 Prosecutor. She has been instructed in cases involving assault, possession of offensive weapons, theft, and burglary. She recently prosecuted in a case of trespass with intent to commit a sexual offence, in which the defendant intended to rape the complainant and used a knife to threaten her.

Laura is developing a specialism in s.22 POCA applications: she is regularly instructed to pursue such applications on behalf of the CPS specialist asset recovery unit and has spoken at a CPS-led international prosecutors conference about these legally complex applications.

Prior to commencing pupillage at 2 Hare Court, Laura spent one year at the Crown Prosecution Service. She worked under the supervision of a Principal Crown Advocate and assisted with research and drafting in cases involving murder, manslaughter, complex fraud and rape.
