Lawyers in the Making?

Our Mentors provide many opportunities for our Stars to explore post-Year 12 career or further study pathways.

Recently, our Casuarina Mentors organised for some of our Casuarina Stars to take part in a Bilata Pre-Law Program Day held by the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA).

They were given information about the Bilata Pre-Law program offered by NAAJA and visited two law firms in Darwin that support the program – Maurice Blackburn and Halfpennys.

As part of the day, the students also had the opportunity to sit in on some court sessions in both the Supreme and Magistrates Courts.

Importantly, our Stars were able to gain a deeper insight into what it takes to become a lawyer, what the job involves, and the support offered to Indigenous students by NAAJA.
