Tom is currently the crime pupil at 36 Crime.
Prior to pupillage, Tom worked with several East African NGOs. He worked as a consultant for Horizon Institute in Somaliland, with a particular focus on prison reform and access to justice. In Kenya, he researched breaches of electoral law in the 2013 Kenyan election and later drafted a report on the feasibility of the ‘Malabo Protocol’: an African Union proposal to set up a regional African court to try international crimes.
Tom has also undertaken internships at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, the Good Law Project, the International Bar Association, and the Engine Room, an organisation that advises social justice organisations on their use of data and technology.
