Emeritus Professor Rosalind Croucher AM FRSA FACLM (Hon) FAAL TEP commenced a seven-year term as President of the Australian Human Rights Commission on 30 July 2017. Prior to joining the Commission, Rosalind was President of the Australian Law Reform Commission (2009–2017) and Commissioner (2006–2009), where she led a number of significant law reform inquiries. She has lectured and published extensively, principally in the fields of equity, trusts, property, inheritance, legal history, and increasingly in public policy. In 2011 she was recognised as one of the 40 ‘inspirational alumni’ of UNSW, where she gained her PhD. In 2014 Croucher was acknowledged for her contributions to public policy as one of Australia’s ‘100 Women of Influence’ in the Australian Financial Review and Westpac awards; and for her ‘outstanding contribution to the legal profession’ was awarded the Australian Women Lawyer’s award. In 2015 she was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for ‘significant service to the law as an academic, to legal reform and education, to professional development, and to the arts’, and in 2016 Macquarie University conferred on her the title of Emeritus Professor.
