What Indigenous interns say

I have really enjoyed Susan’s company, and have learned so much from her during my internship. I am extremely grateful for the time we’ve had together, and for the opportunity.

Ruby Langton-Batty, Susan Phillips

I have learnt a lot whilst completing my internship at AV, being able to sit in on executive team meetings has given me a valuable understanding into the processes of governments. Furthermore, working within the treaty team has given me a unique insight into the current treaty process in Victoria.  My internship at AV has also provided the opportunity to develop substantive legal skills and connect the theory and practice of law by experiencing the law in practice outside of the classroom and textbooks.  Finally, whilst at AV I have been able to strengthen existing relationships as well as form new ones with the Victorian Aboriginal community. Much like the rest of Aboriginal Australia, my community has been encouraged by the treaty discussions in Victoria and will be keeping a close watch on the process.

Every step of the way I have felt as if I am a part of the team and have been trusted with a host of different media and comms work including: writing up media releases, social media engagement, assisting with events etc.
