*About Emeritus Professor Gillian Triggs*
Emeritus Professor Gillian Triggs is the President of the Australian Human
Rights Commission, taking up her appointment in 2012. She was Dean of the
Faculty of Law and Challis Professor of International Law at the University
of Sydney from 2007-12 and Director of the British Institute of
International and Comparative Law from 2005-7. She is a former Barrister
with Seven Wentworth Chambers and a Governor of the College of Law.

Professor Triggs has combined an academic career with international
commercial legal practice and worked with governments and international
organisations on disputed continental shelf and other territorial claims,
World Trade Organisation law and human rights. Her focus at the Commission
is on the implementation in Australian law of the human rights treaties to
which Australia is a party, and to work with nations in the Asia Pacific
region on practical approaches to human rights.

Professor Triggs has a long-standing commitment to legal education, which
builds upon the Commission’s efforts to inform Australians, especially
children, about their fundamental human rights.
