DOMINIC NGUYEN

Dominic is a barrister at Lilley Chambers in Brisbane where he practises in the areas of criminal law, domestic and family violence law, coronial inquests and Commissions of Inquiry. He holds a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from The University of Queensland, a Juris Doctor from The University of Melbourne and a Bachelor of Civil Law from St Anne’s College, The University of Oxford. He was a sessional academic at the Australian National University from 2014 to 2018 and a volunteer lawyer at the South West Community Legal Centre (Inala) from 2014 to 2020. Dominic sits on the Bar Association of Queensland's Equal Opportunity and Diversity Committee and is also Secretary of the Oxford University Society Queensland.

Dominic was born in Vietnam. In 1980, his parents escaped Vietnam by boat where, after a few days at sea, they were rescued by a Greek ship and taken to a Singaporean refugee camp and then onto Australia. Dominic would love to see more cultural diversity at the Bar and wants to inspire more Asian-Australians to become barristers. He looks forward to the day when appearing before an Asian-Australian judge or magistrate becomes the norm.
