Dr Camille Goodman joined the Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources and Security (ANCORS) at the University of Wollongong as a Senior Lecturer in March 2021. She is also a Visiting Fellow at the ANU College of Law, where she completed her PhD on 'The Nature and Extent of Coastal State Jurisdiction over Living Resources in the Exclusive Economic Zone' in January 2019, with support from the Sir Roland Wilson Foundation.
From 2005 to 2020, Camille worked at the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department, principally in the Office of International Law, providing legal and policy advice to the Australian Government on a wide range of public international law issues, with a particular focus on law of the sea and international fisheries law. From 2010 to 2012, she was seconded to the International Fisheries team at the Department of agriculture. Over the years, Camille served as the Australian Government legal adviser at many international meetings, including the negotiation of the South Pacific Regional Fisheries Management Organization and the Port State Measures Agreement, and at meetings of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission and the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. She also managed international litigation before international courts and tribunals.

The possible interactions between treaty and custom are generally considered by reference to the well-established framework set out by the International Court of Justice in the North Sea Continental Shelf Cases of 1969; namely, the declaratory, crystallising and generating effects of a treaty (as for a resolution) on a customary rule.
