Laurene Soubise

Hello and welcome to my ePortfolio!

Originally from Lyon, France, I completed my Bachelor in Law at the Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3 in 2005. I then spent a year in Germany, through the Erasmus scheme, studying German Law at the Humboldt University in Berlin. I came back to France afterwards to study my Masters in Human Rights Law at Université Lumière Lyon 2, which I completed in 2007. I moved to the UK in 2008 and worked as an administrative officer at a university for two years.

I started my Phd in October 2011, under a co-tutelle agreement between the University of Warwick and the Université Lumière Lyon 2. This means that I had two supervisors Prof. Jackie Hodgson in the School of Law and Prof. Edith Jaillardon in Lyon. My PhD was funded through the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) studentship scheme, under the Socio-Legal Studies pathway.

My Phd is a comparative study of prosecutorial discretion and accountability in France and England/Wales. It endeavours to understand how the French and Anglo-Welsh criminal justice systems attempt to combine the necessities of accountability for public prosecution services in modern democratic societies with the flexibility and reactivity needed in the application of the law provided by prosecutorial discretion.
