I spent six weeks as an Aurora intern in the Law and Justice section of NAAJA in Darwin in the summer of 2016/2017. I had the pleasure of also doing various tasks for the criminal and the civil law NAAJA teams and so my time there was varied.

My internship with the Aurora Internship Program was an unforgettable experience and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the relevant areas of law.

My internship via the Aurora Internship Program at the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) has been one of the most interesting and challenging learning experience I have undertaken in my short-lived legal career!

My internship experience via the Aurora Internship Program at DDHS was unlike any other work placement or internship I’ve completed before.

For my Aurora Internship, I was placed for 5 weeks at the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) in Darwin. Before I arrived, I had never been to Darwin and knew very little about the work that NAAJA carried out.

Travelling from Melbourne (where I am currently attending university) to Darwin and interning at NAILSMA for four weeks through the Aurora Internship Program was a truly awesome experience overall.
