Federal Member for Deakin 
Assistant Minister to the Treasurer

Michael Sukkar is the Federal Member for Deakin and the Assistant Minister to the Treasurer. He was elected to the Australian House of Representatives at the 2013 federal election and is the ninth person to hold the seat of Deakin since its creation in 1937.

Michael has lived, worked and been a part of the Deakin electorate all of his life.

Michael grew up in Ringwood and attended primary school at Sacred Heart in Croydon and then secondary school at Aquinas College in Ringwood. After secondary school, he went on to complete a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Commerce at Deakin University in Burwood. He later furthered his studies by completing a Master of Laws at the University of Melbourne.

During university Michael was involved in a number of local community activities, including coaching junior teams at St. John’s Basketball Club in Mitcham.

Prior to entering the Parliament, Michael Sukkar spent seven years working as a lawyer with the firm, Ashurst Australia (then known as Blake Dawson Waldron) where he was a Senior Associate. In this role, he advised many of Australia’s most successful individuals and largest corporate groups.
