n the final year of my straight law degree at the University of Tasmania, I applied for an internship via the Aurora Native Title Internship Program. I felt the Program matched my human rights and social justice inclinations perfectly, and I was right!

After completing my first Aurora internship at the Kimberley Land Council in the summer 2013/14 round within the anthropology stream, I decided to apply for a second internship so I could build upon my legal skills in the area of native title.

Awakening to the realities of Native Title

I learned about the Aurora Project through my friends who completed internships in previous years and was inspired to apply this year as a graduate of Macquarie University.

The National Native Title Tribunal is an agency established under the Native Title Act (NTA) of 1993. It performs a range of functions required by the Act. During my internship at the NNTT, I was able to further my knowledge of native title and the processes associated with it.

Coming from Europe, I had limited knowledge of Australia’s Indigenous groups and their multifaceted cultural heritage. Therefore, during my six month long stay in Australia as a part of my study program, I was eager to gain more in-depth information into the complexity of Indigenous affairs.
