Testifying for the Prosecution
21 November 2022
Natalie Carmen of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) met with our Sixth Form A Level Law students in November to talk about her work as a Criminal Prosecutor.
Natalie outlined how she works closely with the police, deciding whether or not to charge defendants and the standard of evidence needed to be proved for a case to go to court. She also identified for the students some of the more high profile cases she has worked on, but obviously couldn't divulge any of the more gory details for them!
Natalie gave the students a really good insight into a career that deals with murder, domestic violence and sexual offences on a daily basis. The students were enthralled by her accounts and some left the room considering a possible CPS career!
