Over November and December of 2018, I completed a legal internship through the Aurora Internship Program. The Aurora Project works to place university students and recent graduates in Indigenous organisations in the areas of legal services, anthropology and other social sciences.
Over the summer period of 2017/2018, I undertook a legal internship through the Aurora Internship Program.
In February 2018, I undertook an Aurora Internship in my hometown of Adelaide. Aurora is an organisation that supports Indigenous organisations and facilitates opportunities for students and graduates to gain practical experience within the indigenous sector.
I graduated in law a while ago and have been out of the profession for some time. I applied to the Aurora Internship Program because of a long held belief in social justice and with a hope it would be an opportunity to re-acquaint myself with the legal profession.
I completed my Aurora Internship at Campbell Law in Adelaide, South Australia. This has certainly been one of the highlights of my recently completed law degree. I have a more realistic understanding of native title law thanks to my internship at Campbell Law.
My second placement was with Barrister Andrew Collett in my hometown of Adelaide. For the first three weeks of my placement I was predominately assisting Andrew with his final submissions for the Goolarabooloo native title claim.
We all know practical experience is an important addition to a law degree, in particular for those of us wanting to practice law.
It would not come to the surprise of most that the higgidy-jarble of a lawyer’s yarble can be confusing and unkind.
