The Agreements, Treaties and Negotiated Settlements (ATNS) project has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my Law degree.
I jumped at the opportunity to apply for the Aurora Internship Program because of my interest in native title and Indigenous affairs.
The Agreements Treaties and Negotiated Settlements (ATNS) project falls within the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health at the University of Melbourne.
The Aurora Project was created to strengthen Indigenous organisations by supporting staff and facilitating employment opportunities within these organisations. The Aurora Internship Program is part of this endeavor.
As a final year Arts/Law student, I was motivated to apply for the Aurora Internship Program because of the distinct lack of focus on Indigenous affairs and the impact of colonisation on the law throughout my education.
I undertook an Aurora internship at ATNS, the Australian Treaties and Negotiation Settlement (ATNS). I was thrilled to have been provided with this wonderful opportunity to learn about Indigenous rights, land agreements and native title.
I decided to study Arts and Law at Monash University because I wanted my professional career to contribute towards fostering a society that is inclusive, respectful and empowering.
