Prior to that, Ragu practised as a barrister between 1992 and 2006.

Ragu has practised in a variety of areas of the law, including in criminal matters, commercial disputes and in a wide range of matters involving administrative law (merits/judicial review). He has appeared in all Victorian and federal courts (except the High Court) and in the AAT and the VCAT.
