I gained a wealth of knowledge about myself, Noongar culture and the wide range of areas that SWALSC is involved in. I had a self enriching experience like no other.

Thomas Camp, SWALSC

I’ve learnt a lot of important legal skills and got my head around some fairly complex concepts regarding native title.

Hugh Bond, SWALSC

Everyone’s hard work and commitment to securing a good future for the Noongar people has definitely left a lasting impression on me.​

Kim Borg, SWALSC

The ability to 'soak up' the knowledge and experience of the lawyers at SWALSC was a great way of confirming my own career path in native title. The organisation of the program is astounding and really makes you feel like you are part of a promising project.

Katie Driscoll, SWALSC

Thanks very much, both to Aurora and SWALSC, for giving me the opportunity to see what working as an anthropologist in Native Title is like. I have really appreciated it!

Eliza Shaw, SWALSC

It was a truly fantastic experience and I feel very lucky to have been able to take part in the program. I definitely think this kind of program is something more anthropology and social science students should be doing.

Tais Topal Silva, SWALSC

I definitely think this kind of program is something more anthropology and social science students should be doing … because there is little knowledge of what options are available after they have finished their studies.

Tais Tal Silva, SWALSC

Being involved in a historic negotiation process, even in a small way, was challenging, exciting, and a huge honour. It's been a fantastic experience and one of the best things I've ever done.  

Benjamin Craig-Wadham, SWALSC

It was a truly fantastic experience and I feel very lucky to have been able to take part in the program. I definitely think this kind of program is something more anthropology and social science students should be doing.

Tais Topal Silva, SWALSC

The work itself was the reward and being able to make realisations about the structure or thinking behind the language was thrilling in itself.

Rosemary Virgona, SWALSC

I think Aurora is doing a great job in getting students to know more about the native title system and what working in the area is like.

Tais Tal Silva, SWALSC

Whilst data entry can be a slow and tedious process, in this case it gave much insight into the problematic and conflicting nature of primary sources, as well as an appreciation for the vast amounts of information involved in native title claims.

Andrew Whalley, SWALSC
