What Indigenous interns say

The support I received from Aurora was phenomenal in organising the travel and accommodation for my placement. It’s such an amazing program and I will happily urge anyone interested to apply. Thanks so much for such an amazing experience. It has motivated to pursue a career that helps people.

This placement has truly given me insight into how I can shape my future practice to help remove obstacles which prevent patients from getting adequate health care.

Hannah Wood, Lions

Highlights were gaining hands-on practical skills, creating professional networking opportunities and developing positive work ethics and professional identity. 

Allison Morgan, WGN

Overall, I had an invaluable experience. Most importantly, the experience turned my mind to: how ‘rights’ which Aboriginal people have gained in the western legal system can be used effectively and to their benefit into the future.

My four weeks spent as an Aurora Commonwealth funded intern gave me insightful experiences and knowledge about my future career pathway. It has only made my passion to work in this field stronger, and I am excited to see where the future will take me.

Brielle Long, Taree Christian College

The Aurora internship has been very beneficial to my studies and extended my legal knowledge. I have thoroughly enjoyed working in the non-for profit sector and working alongside passionate legal professionals. Working in native title has confirmed my interest in this legal area and I hope to work as a legal practitioner in a NTRB organisation upon graduation.

Mikaela French, CYLC

Overall, I enjoyed my 6-week Aurora internship at Arts Law and believe that this experience has allowed me to further develop and gain skills, which will assist with my professional development

Sharna White, ALCA

I’ve had such a good time learning the practice of native title first hand. It has really solidified the concepts and has been interesting to see how they work in practice. It’s definitely been the best work experience I have been involved in at uni and has made me really keen to practice native title in my career.
