A six-week Aurora internship shared between two agencies has provided an invaluable insight into the way in which we reform the law and the importance of the rule of law.
I knew a bit about Indigenous land rights before completing an Aurora internship as part of the Aurora Indigenous Program in July 2016.
I completed my second Aurora Internship at the Local Court of the Northern Territory (formally known as the Northern Territory Magistrates Court) in the judge’s chambers. My internship, which lasted four weeks, enabled me to observe the judges in chambers and carry out legal research as needed.
After completing an Arts degree with an Indigenous studies and Sociology focus I set out to undertake an Aurora internship as part of the Aurora Internship Program in my home town of Melbourne.
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.
Five weeks working at the coalface of a women’s legal service in Darwin as part of the Aurora Internship Program helped focused the legal ambitions of fifth year ANU Law student, Harita Sridhar.
I did my Aurora placement at the Darwin office of the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) as part of the Aurora Internship Program. NAAJA has separate sections which undertake criminal work, civil work and community education respectively.
Firstly, I would like to say thank you to the staff at the Aurora Project for providing me with the opportunity to undertake an Aurora legal internship.
The South Australian Law Foundation scholarship provided me with the opportunity to accept an interstate internship facilitated by the Aurora Project Internship Program, within the Northern Land Council (NLC) in the Northern Territory.
Darwin. That sunny, Top-End city, characterised by red dirt, crocodiles and wild national parks. Being a relatively ambitious country girl, I had always dreamed about living in a city with the perfect combination of the city and nature.
