Professor Paula Gerber has been an academic in the Monash University Law Faculty since 2004. As a Professor, Paula researches, teaches and performs leadership roles across the university, the Law Faculty and the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law.
Professor Gerber is an internationally renowned legal scholar with expertise in two distinct areas of research; international human rights law and construction law. She did once manage to find a point of intersection where she could fuse these two disparate areas of interest, namely, disabled access to buildings. However, generally her two speciality fields have little in common, except that she is passionate about both of them.
