The aim of the Aurora Project is to promote the professional development of those who seek career opportunities within the field of Native Title. This developmental goal is achieved through the various schemes offered by the Aurora Project across many disciplines.
In December 2013 I undertook a four week internship with the Kimberley Land Council in Broome as part of the Aurora Project’s nationwide Native Title Internship Program. The experience was fantastic, providing an insight into regional legal work and alternative pathways into legal practice.
I undertook an Aurora Internship (Legal) in the 2013 Winter Intake. I was placed with the Kimberley Land Council (KLC), a Native Title Representative Body (NTRB) in Broome, Western Australia.
My name is India Mason-Cox and I am a fifth year Arts-Law student at UTAS in Hobart, Tasmania. I have recently finished a six-week Aurora Internship on placement at the Kimberley Land Council (‘KLC’) in Broome, WA.
Over January and February 2014, I completed a six-week Aurora placement with the Kimberley Land Council (KLC) in Broome. The KLC is the Native Title Representative Body (NTRB) for the Kimberley region, but it has a long history of advocacy that predates the recognition of native title.
I undertook a 5-week native title focused Aurora internship at the Kimberley Land Council (KLC) via the Aurora Internship Program in February 2015. I’m an Arts/ Law student entering my fourth year of study and have spent a year working in a litigation law firm.
Native Title: Land, Culture and Tradition in the Kimberley
As my plane floated down through the sunset over the place where the velvet Indian Ocean meets the pindan-flecked sands of Cable Beach, I had a feeling I was entering a very special part of this world.
Prior to applying for an Aurora internship via the Aurora Native Title Internship Program, my exposure to native title law was limited to spending five minutes in a Property law class on the Mabo case.
I completed a five-week Aurora Internship at the Kimberley Land Council (KLC) shortly after graduating with a combined Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts (Communication Studies) from the University of Western Australia.
