If it is anything like my experience, the Aurora Internship will be a defining moment in your law degree, challenging you to test the limits of your legal knowledge and teaching you what it is really like to work as a lawyer.

Working for the Northern Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA, www.naaja.org.au ) in Darwin for just over three months has been both a challenge and a privilege. Above all, it was an exciting and rewarding experience.
