Sir Peter Machin North, CBE, QC, FBA (born 30 August 1936) is a British academic lawyer who served as Principal of Jesus College, Oxford from 1984 to 2005 and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford from 1993 to 1997.
Sir Peter North chaired the Review Body of the Independent Review on Parades and Marches in Northern Ireland, whose final report (published on 29 January 1997 and widely known as "The North Report") led to the establishment of the Parades Commission which regulates potentially controversial parades in Northern Ireland.
North was also chair of a University of Oxford inquiry, established to review the running of the University. The report, published on 29 January 1998 (precisely one year after the Parades and Marches report), was also known as "The North Report". He was knighted on 10 March 1998.
