On the final day of my Aurora internship at the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA), I was asked what the three highlights of my time in Darwin had been.

For my Aurora Internship, I was placed for 5 weeks at the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) in Darwin. Before I arrived, I had never been to Darwin and knew very little about the work that NAAJA carried out.

Even now I can’t believe how quickly my Aurora Project internship with the Law and Justice Section of the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) passed. Time flies when you are having fun – and also when you’re busy – two things I happened to be during my internship.

Having worked in Policy for a few years I completed a Master of Laws to set my career in a more legal direction.

Interning in Darwin during July, escaping the -5 weather of Canberra and entering a balmy 30-degree day average was a definite bonus I hadn’t considered when applying for an Aurora internship with NAAJA, the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency.

Don’t let the fact that it’s in Australia fool you; I got culture shock when I stepped out of Darwin Airport into a dry 33 degrees, after leaving Canberra in subzero temperatures.

Summer 2015

This summer I spent six weeks in Darwin undertaking an Aurora internship at the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA). I can honestly say it’s the best thing that I’ve done since coming to law school.
