CPS and Bradford Law School Help Students Aim for the Top

24/04/2012

The Crown Prosecution Service and Bradford Law School have got together to encourage second year law students to aim for the top in their exams this summer.

A prize of a week's work experience at the CPS will be offered to the student achieving the highest mark in the criminal law module, taken by students in their second year. 

It's anticipated the week will provide the student with an overview of the work of the CPS with observation sessions in the Magistrates' and Crown Courts as well as time spent on a number of different teams in the office.

The winning student will be announced  in the summer term.

Martin Goldman, Chief Crown Prosecutor for Yorkshire and Humberside said:

"I'm delighted to be able to assist the Law School in this way. Starting out in the legal profession is more difficult these days than ever - so every bit of work experience is helpful.

"We can't accommodate large numbers of work placement students as we used to do, but this is one way of ensuring that we can offer some assistance, and also encourage students to do their very best in their examinations."

To launch the competition, Martin  delivered an introductory talk about the CPS at the Law School on 24 April.
