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.

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.

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.
