NEW COMMISSIONER of the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC), Professor Rosalind Croucher, has been appointed for three years.
With 25 years’ experience as an academic lawyer, including seven years as dean of law at Macquarie University, Croucher begins her role on 5 February 2007.
She is a foundation fellow of the Australian Academy of Law, fellow of the Australian Academy of Forensic Sciences and Royal Society for the Encouragement of the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, and an honorary fellow of the Australian College of Legal Medicine.
“I believe the skills and experience that [Croucher] brings to the ALRC are particularly well suited to the work of the Commission at a time when it is conducting reviews of privacy laws and legal professional privilege,” Attorney-General Philip Ruddock said.
“I believe she will contribute greatly to the profile and standing of the ALRC, one of the leading law reform bodies in Australia and our region.
