Mr Julian McMahon

Julian McMahon did his LLM in the mid 1990s at Monash while working full time as a junior lawyer. Since becoming a barrister in 1998, his work has been in criminal law. Following the arrest of young Australian Van Nguyen in Singapore in 2002, he has been involved in death penalty cases. Over time this work has broadened to a more general advocacy role on the issue. He is currently President of Reprieve Australia, a single issue organisation committed to ending the death penalty. In the last few years Julian has travelled widely and worked with lawyers and others across the region, and spoken often in Australia and internationally on the death penalty, the rule of law, and related matters.

In 2016 Julian was the Victorian Australian of the Year. He was recently awarded the Law Council of Australia President’s Medal for 2016. He is on the board of Reprieve Australia and of Jesuit Social Services.
