3 days after completing my final third year Contract Law exam, I set off on a 7-hour drive to the rural town of Lismore in NSW! I was about to partake in a 5 week, full-time internship with the Aboriginal Legal Service (ALS) as part of the Aurora Internship Program.

In the hustle and bustle of law school it is easy to forget that we are working to get out of here and practice in the real world. The real world you say? You mean we’ll actually leave the law library one day? Yes, you will have to leave the comfort of those book adorned walls.
