This is a story of life both on and off the Court. A member of the pre-baby boomer generation, Peter tells of growing up after the Second World War, University life and National Service in Tasmania in the 1950s, and some highlights, and lowlights, from 23 years at the Victorian Bar. On the Federal Court there is experience with major cases, some thoughts about the use of experts, and the writing of judgments.

Peter and his wife Sally have been tireless travellers, especially by bicycle – ranging from the Camino de Santiago de Compostela to Budapest to New Zealand’s South Island.
