The most rewarding aspects were having the chance to sit down for six weeks and get across as much of the issues that feed into sacred site protection and realise of how all the bits fit in together.

James Apps, Andrew Collett

The Aurora Native Title Internship has provided me with a huge amount of knowledge and life experience that will certainly enrich my practice of the law. My experience with Andrew has allowed me to further develop my own legal research and drafting skills and has encouraged me to pursue a career working with indigenous people.

Blythe McLachlan-Kambuts, Andrew Collett

Not only has my workload been diverse, the work within each matter has been varied and engaging. I have enjoyed a combination of research and analytical tasks and Andrew has shown great appreciation for my contribution.

Elliot Kind, Andrew Collett

The reality of my internship was very different to what I had expected, but it was a far more rewarding, beneficial and enlightening experience than I could have ever anticipated. Rather than being spoon fed information, I was given responsibility and a real opportunity to use the skills that I have obtained at university.

Sarah Pringle, Andrew Collett

Overall the Aurora experience was very rewarding in that it gave colour to the things taught in law school and I have certainly gained an understanding of what it takes to work as a barrister.

I'm sorry an internship this good has to be so short, but, on the other hand, it's been a great taste of native title, and enough to inspire me to come back to it in the future.

Gabrielle Piesiewicz, Andrew Collett

One of my supervisor's goals was to show me the reality of working in native title and I really think he has excelled in this objective. I found working on the law and opinions very interesting, I learnt a lot and also was able to apply some existing knowledge.

Emma Riggs, Andrew Collett

Looking back on my time with Andrew, I learnt more practical legal skills than I have in any university law subject to date.

Sarah Pringle, Andrew Collett
