The experience far exceeded my expectations. I met the gap in my knowledge in the important area of ICIP, by working alongside and learning from the leader in the field, Terri Janke who is my new role model in the legal profession. I was afforded the opportunity to build on my knowledge base, significantly expand my existing skill set and refine my technical proficiency.

I have learnt an incredible amount about intellectual property and Indigenous cultural and intellectual property (ICIP). Working with Terri Janke and her team, I now know the legal professional that I aspire to be.  I will truly value this internship for the rest of my career.

I learnt an incredible amount, ranging from legal to non-legal knowledge as well as practical skills for application in not only the legal profession, but everyday life. I am incredibly grateful to have been able to undertake this internship and am certain it will guide and enhance my future career as a legal professional.

The experience was invaluable from both a personal perspective and in relation to my ongoing professional development.

Astrid Gillam, Terri Janke

This was a valuable, rewarding, well-rounded and enlightening educational experience which showed me that a legal career can be about more than just black letter law; it can be about empowering the community and building relationships.  Indigenous cultural and intellectual property (ICIP) was a fascinating and challenging area of law to experience. I was excited to learn from someone so well regarded and I learnt a great deal under her mentorship.  My time at on placement taught me a key truth: everything in this area of law has to do with people and what motivates them. The law can be used to empower your clients to achieve their dreams, and to fight for their rights when the chips are down.

Overall, the experience of interning at TJC has been one of the best experiences of my JD degree. I have learnt things and had experiences that I would never have had otherwise.  What I have learnt is that part of being a lawyer is recognizing when you don’t know something and taking steps to remedy this. Whether this be through research, conversations with co-workers, or even through making mistakes, the important thing is to strive to know; and while I am still not sure of my legal future, I definitely want to be someone who strives for knowledge.

I had the opportunity to gain practical and useful work experience in the Indigenous sector, and develop professionally through the strengthening of research, writing, interpersonal and time management skills.

Lui Perkins, Terri Janke

Interning with TJC has given me a better understanding of IP law generally. I have also gained a better understanding of the need for evidence, and how that can pose difficulties.  Overall, interning with TJC was incredibly enriching both personally and professionally.
