In mid November I arrived at the NAAJA offices on Smith Street, Darwin as part of the Aurora Internship Program. I was taken up to the criminal law floor, quickly learning that the different teams of NAAJA were organizationally and physically separated. My supervisor raced me around the office.

Stepping out of the aeroplane and into the blistering Darwin heat was like walking straight into the body of a furnace. My breath was embarrassingly laboured from the heavy air and I was sweating profusely as I clambered into the backseat of a taxi.

The Aurora Internship Program places students and graduates in law, anthropology, and social sciences in internships with organisations that have a focus on the Indigenous sector and native title. I was lucky enough to be placed with the Northern Land Council (NLC) in Darwin.

Darwin is an incredibly vibrant city. It is multicultural, but in a different way to Sydney or Melbourne. It’s rare to come across a true local – that is, someone who was born and bred in Darwin and continues to live there.

During the winter of 2018, I completed a 4 week Aurora internship in the legal branch at the Northern Land Council (NLC) in Darwin, Northern Territory. I was fortunate to be funded by Gilbert and Tobin during my internship.

The first time I heard about the Aurora Internship Program was through a friend of mine who had recently returned from an anthropology internship in Alice Springs.
