Rising Stars 2020

Company: Office of the DPP
Title: Crown counsel
Age: 28

Luke Ogden, Crown counsel at the Office of the DPP, has been dubbed one of the most capable prosecutors in Tasmania for quite simply having ‘one of the most impressive legal minds’. His thirst for knowledge, his commitment to the rule of law, and importantly, his approach to his career is one of unwavering commitment. He is uncompromising in adhering to the value of a balanced, but resolutely fierce, Crown advocate. Ogden continues to serve the people of Tasmania in his prosecution of difficult, taxing cases, and routinely appears as a trial advocate alone in the Supreme Court. He has also instructed his superiors in the Court of Criminal Appeal. He is not only recognised for his trial successes in the past 12 months, but also in his capacity to see his role as that all-important task: bringing the truth to bear in Court.
