For four weeks during the winter break, I undertook an Aurora internship via the Aurora Native Title Internship Program at South Australian Native Title Services Ltd (SANTS).
The Aurora Native Title Internship is a program that was established to assist organisations and practitioners working in the under-resourced field of native title, and more broadly Indigenous affairs.
I undertook my six week legal placement as part of the Aurora Native Title Internship Program with the South Australian Native Services [SANTS] during the summer 2012/13 round.
My six-week Aurora internship placement was with Andrew Collett, a local Adelaide Barrister. When I signed up for the Aurora Internship Program, I thought my internship would directly and solely relate to native title claims.
During February and March of 2013, I was involved in a six-week Aurora placement at South Australian Native Title Services (SANTS).
During the winter break I undertook a five-week internship at the South Australian Native Title Services (SANTS) as part of the Aurora Native Title Internship Program.
My experience as an Aurora intern with South Australian Native Title Services (SANTS) was a very positive one. Firstly, I was placed at a great organisation and assigned to a great supervisor, who was a wealth of knowledge about native title and the various facets.
I applied for a Legal Internship with the Aurora Native Title Internship Program soon after completing my legal studies. I’d heard about the internship program whilst I was still studying, but had never seriously considered applying.
Adelaide Barrister and Mediator, Andrew Collett, has worked with Aboriginal people for his entire career, and this is a milestone not to be taken lightly.
