Peter Heerey AM QC was a Judge of the Federal Court of Australia for 18 years. While on the Court he also served as President of the Defence Force Discipline Appeal Tribunal and as a Deputy President of the Australian Competition Tribunal.
After retirement he chaired the Australian Electoral Commission for five years.
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.
