Harvey Tomes OH (2015), future trainee solicitor at Boodle Hatfield LLP, returned to Hampton for a careers lunch and interview with Hampton Radio.
After leaving Hampton, Harvey went on to be awarded a BA in International Relations at Durham University and is currently studying the Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course at BPP University. He spent two weeks on a Vacation Scheme at Boodle Hatfield, which included seats in Property and Corporate Law, as well as some Litigation and Private Client work.
Quizzed by a group of pupil reporters, Harvey spoke about his interest in the Law and why he decided to go into the profession.
Working in the law is very interesting and is a good career to fall back on. The work is really varied and you have time to decide what area to specialise in whilst training.
Harvey had this message to today’s Hamptonians:
Do your research, especially when applying for positions. Attention to detail is important in everything you’re doing, from applications to being presentable at interview. And finally, it’s good to have balance in your life.
