Prize winning Law student writes on CPS placement experience


Abigail Sisnett, a recent LLB Law (Commercial Law) graduate, undertook work experience with the Crown Prosecution Service as a reward for winning the prestigious CPS Yorkshire and Humberside Criminal Law Prize.

She has written about her experience for the Faculty of Management and Law blog.

My week’s itinerary was planned with the intention of exposing me to every area and department at the CPS. I was able to shadow a number of lawyers in the Magistrates’ court; witnessed a live trial in the Crown court and met with all the mangers of each department where they gave an overview of each department.

In addition to this I shadowed a Crown Court Lawyer where she explained her role in CPS; how the casework process operates and even witnessed an ongoing case which involved reviewing CCTV coverage that was actually going to be used as evidence.
