I left Melbourne University with my Bachelor of Arts degree in my hand and a bunch of enthusiasm, yet still unsure how to approach the big scary job market.

The extensive publicity for the Aurora Native Title Internship Program around Adelaide Law School meant I was always aware of the Program. So, as a soon-to-be graduate looking for places to gain practical experience in legal issues of a distinct nature, I applied for a legal internship.

When I realised that I had been given the opportunity to leave Sydney during one of the coldest and wettest winters in many years to spend five weeks in 30 degree Darwin, I was pretty excited.

Like many other stressed law students looking for a reason to stay motivated in the rigorous and stressful beast known as law school, I began searching for a reason to stay focused, inspired and driven for the final leg of my seemingly endless degree.

Last year, I finally applied for a legal internship via The Aurora Native Title Internship Program; something I had always planned to do throughout my combined degrees, yet somehow never seemed to get around to it.
