Five weeks interning at Central Desert Native Title Services (Central Desert) provided a great insight into both the operation of native title law and the continuity of law and culture of Western Desert people.

Central Desert Native Title Services:  Not Your Average Legal Service

It was a privilege to have been given an Aurora legal placement at Central Desert Native Title Services (CDNTS) in East Perth.  I spent four weeks at CDNTS in July 2018.  It was an excellent time.

Through the Aurora Internship Program I was placed at Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation (YMAC), based at their Perth office. I was there for 6 weeks throughout November and December 2017. YMAC is a not for profit Native Title Representative Body.

I decided to study law because I was interested in doing something useful. During my studies, I saw avenues to social justice through international human rights law, community legal centres and refugee law.
