Biography/History

Legal scholar, humanitarian, Professor of Law, Monash University, 1965-2000, Peter Louis Waller, born 1935, has long been involved in community issues ranging from institutional legal reform and Aboriginal rights to IVF and medical ethics. A former Victorian Law Reform Commissioner, Professor Waller was a member of the Law Reform Advisory Council and foundation chairman of the Victorian Law Reform Commission. His work with the Red Cross included a role as foundation chair of the International Humanitarian Law Committee and a member of the Geneva Conventions Disseminations Committee. He was also foundation president of the Victorian Aboriginal Legal Service and chairman of the Criminal Law Working Group.

A lifelong interest in the intersection between the law and medicine saw Professor Waller chair several medical ethics committees, including the Victorian Government's Committee to Consider the Social, Ethical and Legal Issues arising from In-Vitro Fertilisation and the Committee of Management of the Monash Centre of Human Bioethics.
