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.

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.

It took me six years to get through my bachelor degree in Ecology, meandering through just about all departments and labs available at the University campus and delayed even further by exchange programs overseas.

In July of 2017, I was given the opportunity to be part of The Aurora  Internship Program. Aurora places a range of students and graduates from different disciplines with Indigenous sector host organisations that may lack staff or funding.
