This summer, as an Aurora legal intern, I was lucky enough to feel that I really did something worthwhile. I spent six amazing weeks in Canberra supporting the native title research and publications team at the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS).

While like all law students I was familiar with the existence of native title, prior to my Aurora internship I knew little of the complexities of gaining recognition of native title rights and interests.

My internship via the Aurora Native Title Internship Program at the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) has been a rewarding learning experience.

On our first day of the Aurora internship program, we were bombarded with many new acronyms: AIATSIS, NTRU, NTRBs, PBCs, ILUAs and the NTA.

Having been a law student for the last four and half years, I have to say that I am much more cynical than I was when I first arrived at the ANU.
