This was an incredible opportunity to work in a completely different legal sector than I have experience in. It gave me an insight into how not for profits without government funding operate and the amazing work that they do with very little resources. I met so many great people who were generous with their time and sharing their experiences with a student.

I developed a real understanding of how those in the legal sector, particularly non-Indigenous people, can engage with Indigenous people, be they as clients, community members or leaders, in a way that brings about positive change in the criminal justice system. I similarly gained an understanding of the ‘behind the scenes’ policy work that is integral to positive law reform in Australia.

I cannot stress enough the cultural immersion, career development and friendships this internship has provided me and the support the Aurora team has always made readily available for me throughout the process.

This experience has set up a pathway into my future that I was always keen on pursuing, but it has given me clarity and a realistic vision I can strive to pursue.  I honestly cannot thank Aurora enough for this opportunity and experience and generosity.

The Aurora Internship was one of the best things I have completed in my undergraduate career and I am looking forward to if I can participate in another one later this year.The Aurora Internship was one of the best things I have completed in my undergraduate career and I am looking forward to if I can participate in another one later this year.

It was mind-blowing to watch and be part of the collaboration of the existing services which come together under Maranguka’s umbrella.  Inspirational is an understatement to witness how such pro-active, transparent, forward thinking community leaders can bring about such positive change supported by a progressively developed and established system that is proving to be successful.

Working on the Community Toolkit provided me with an insight into the intersection between state policy and the law, and how law reform can be achieved. The people that I was able to meet and hear about was also inspirational. Above all, I take away a deep appreciation for the work of not-for-profit organisations, and a strong passion for justice reinvestment in Australia.
