  • Episode 20 : The Hon Chief Judge Peter Kidd

Our guest on episode 20 is the Chief Judge of the County Court of Victoria, the Honourable Peter Kidd. During his first few years in a commercial firm, The Chief was unsure if law was for him, but a decision to move to crime ignited his passion for the profession. After his time at the Commonwealth DPP, he went to the bar and was quickly working on very large and often high profile cases, honing his skills and advocacy style, often under immense pressure. Peter also managed to combine his love of travel with his love of the law, working as a prosecutor at the War Crimes Tribunal in Bosnia; another challenging, enriching and fascinating chapter of his career. Our episode covers all of this and of course his role as The Chief, and is an enlightening and fascinating conversation.
