During law school, Thomas helped found and develop the Queen’s Personal Injury Club. Thomas fostered his interest in advocacy by volunteering with ACORN Canada while in law school and as a Caseworker in Queen’s Legal Aid. Thomas was actively involved in his school community as a member of the Queen’s Law “Tortfeasors” Rugby team and as a managing member of In Vino Veritas.
Thomas’ background in law and criminology along with his experience working at a variety of legal settings including the federal government and mediation provides him with a unique perspective when analyzing legal issues and negotiation. He is currently publishing a paper with the Cambridge Student Law Journal in England titled “Mosh Pits or Liability Pits? Criminal and Tort Liability at Concerts”.
In his free time, Thomas enjoys playing rugby, live music, collecting and listening to records, and volunteering with Lawyers Feed the Hungry.
