Timothy J. McEvoy is a barrister in Melbourne, Australia. After graduating from the University of Melbourne in Law in 1993, McEvoy clerked for the Chief Justice of the Federal Court of Australia, and spent time with the Brussels office of Oppenheimer Wolff & Donnelly. In 1995 he joined the commercial litigation section of Freehill Hollingdale & Page, one of Australia's largest law firms. He began the LL.M. program at the University of Virginia School of Law in 1997, and was awarded an S.J.D. in May 1999. His dissertation dealt with provisional and protective measures in international litigation and their recognition and enforcement in private international law.
In 1998 McEvoy was appointed by the Australian Attorney-General's Department to the Australian Delegation of Experts to the Special Commission of the Hague Conference on Private International Law. The Special Commission was charged with drafting the proposed Hague convention on jurisdiction and foreign judgments in civil and commercial matters. While at the Law School in 1997 and 1998, McEvoy assisted the Permanent Bureau of the Hague Conference with a comparative study of provisional and protective measures.

He is a member of the Victorian Bar and is also admitted to practice in New South Wales and the High Court of Australia. In March 2011 he was awarded a Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Australia-U.S. Alliance Studies sponsored by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to examine closer legal cooperation between the U.S. and Australia.
