Over the summer holidays I was very fortunate to complete an Aurora Internship with Just Reinvest NSW, a non-for-profit organisation that advocates for the adoption of justice reinvestment in NSW.

In mid November I arrived at the NAAJA offices on Smith Street, Darwin as part of the Aurora Internship Program. I was taken up to the criminal law floor, quickly learning that the different teams of NAAJA were organizationally and physically separated. My supervisor raced me around the office.

From November to December 2018, I was given the opportunity to take part in an Aurora Internship at the Aboriginal Legal Service in Wollongong for approximately 5 weeks. The Internship has been the most rewarding experience offered to me during my time at university.

My experience at the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA), formerly known as the Central Australian Aboriginal Legal Aid Service (CAALAS), was something I will never forget.
