Oliver Harris

Practice Overview

Oliver joined 30 Park Place following the successful completion of his pupillage under the supervision of Catherine Heyworth (Family) and Jeffrey Jones (Crime).

Oliver has developed a busy mixed practice and accepts instructions in all areas of Civil, Crime and Family as well as regularly appearing in the Immigration and Employment Tribunals.

Oliver studied Law at Durham University before attending Cardiff University to complete a Masters Degree in Law for which he received a distinction. Oliver remained in Cardiff to complete the Bar Professional Training Course.

Prior to the commencement of pupillage Oliver worked as a support worker for young adults with autism and as a paralegal in a Nursing Care Department where he represented clients at NHS Review Panels. These experiences have allowed Oliver to develop skills which help him to understand client concerns and provide reassurance whilst enabling them to achieve the best possible outcome.

Away from work Oliver enjoys swimming and running.
