This summer I completed six weeks as an intern at the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) through the Aurora Internship Program. The internship gave me the opportunity to gain experience in legal practice with a focus on social justice for Indigenous peoples.

The Aurora Internship Program provided me with a unique opportunity to gain practical legal experience, work in public interest environmental law, meet with Traditional Owners of the land, and explore and live a new city all at once.
