Deng Adut’s Decorated Career

Deng Adut co-founded the Australian Criminal Law Group in 2014 with co-founder Joseph Correy where he has pulled together one of the best criminal law teams in Australia. Three years after starting the now prestigious criminal law firm, Den was awarded the NSW Australian of the Year award for his contributions as a leader in the community as a refugee advocate, and for his work in and out of the courtroom.

Recognising Deng’s personal and professional contributions to the betterment of law and justice in the community, Deng has also been awarded the prestigious Law Society President’s Medal, a medal only a handful of lawyers have been awarded.
