Public Prosecution

Laura is a Grade 3 Prosecutor. She has been instructed in cases involving assault, possession of offensive weapons, theft, and burglary. She regularly appears on behalf of the CPS when defendants are sentenced in the Crown Court. 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. She also gained a wealth of experience in the magistrates’ and youth court, prosecuting trials on a daily basis.
