Cait Storr (BA (Hons), JD, GDLP) is a Lecturer in Property and Legal Theory. Her current research focuses on the intersections of the private law of property and the public international law of territory, particularly in postcolonial states. She recently completed her doctorate at Melbourne Law School, and her thesis is entitled 'Nauru: International Status, Imperial Form and the Histories of International Law'. Cait was a legal adviser to the Parliament of Nauru in 2009, and worked as a solicitor with Freehills (now Herbert Smith Freehills). Prior to undertaking legal training, Cait taught in international relations and postcolonial theory with the University of Melbourne, then worked in Indigenous affairs, including with the Victorian Ombudsman, the Department of Justice and with Aboriginal Affairs Victoria.
