Fresh from a fantastic internship at UTS Jumbunna in February 2018 via the Aurora Internship Program, I applied for a second one, and was placed with the Aboriginal Legal Service at their Head Office.
In mid November I arrived at the NAAJA offices on Smith Street, Darwin as part of the Aurora Internship Program. I was taken up to the criminal law floor, quickly learning that the different teams of NAAJA were organizationally and physically separated. My supervisor raced me around the office.
From November to December 2018, I was given the opportunity to take part in an Aurora Internship at the Aboriginal Legal Service in Wollongong for approximately 5 weeks. The Internship has been the most rewarding experience offered to me during my time at university.
I was fortunate enough to be a recipient of The Aurora Project Internship for the Summer 2018/19 round, and to be placed with the Criminal Team at North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) in Katherine.
As part of the Aurora Internship Program (Summer 2018/19), I was afforded the opportunity to spend six weeks with the Aboriginal Legal Service Care and Protection team (‘ALS’) in Parramatta, NSW.
