Portrait of Damien Carrick

Damien Carrick

Damien, a qualified lawyer, joined the ABC in 1996 as the producer of ABC Radio National’s Law Report and in 2001 became the presenter. In the past he has worked as a legal writer for the Victorian Equal Opportunity Commission and written for Australian Lawyer magazine.

Before his career in the media, Damien worked as a solicitor in various glass towers in Melbourne’s CBD and was a long-time volunteer solicitor at his local community legal centre in St Kilda.

Damien is fascinated by the inner workings of our legal system and by how individuals grapple with its complexities as they strive to achieve ‘justice’.
