Centre Volunteers

ILC Student Volunteer Program
The Student Volunteer Program was introduced end 2008 to enable law students gain a better understanding of contemporary Indigenous legal issues whilst building their skills base from activities undertaken within the Centre.  Students who actively take part in the program will have their contribution recognised on the UNSW Supplementary.   Combined with an academic transcript, the Supplementary Transcript provides a distinctive benefit to UNSW graduates by awarding official recognition to those leadership activities promoted under the UNSW banner that could be seen to enhance the development of graduate attributes. If you are keen to learn more about program please give us a call on 9385 2252 or email us at ilc@unsw.edu.au

The ILC particularly encourages Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to participate in our volunteer program.  We believe that working together is the best way to increase awareness of issues as they affect Indigenous people in contemporary society. 

Students can take advantage of the centre’s resources, and use the ILC as a platform to direct greater attention to those issues particularly relevant to their communities and organisations.  We hope that, by encouraging continual dialogue with student volunteers, we will promote an environment that respects the voices and concerns of young people. It is by learning from each other in this way that the ILC can strive always to respond to the values and concerns of Indigenous people living in Australia today.

Through the Volunteer Program you gain unique skills that would be invaluable to your CV.

Volunteers will expand their knowledge of the Australian legal system and Indigenous law and policy, while developing valuable skills in researching and writing at an academic level. They will improve verbal and written communication skills and gain experience working within a team in a professional legal environment.

Volunteers can expect to be actively involved in the Centre’s student run Open Forums, researching articles for the Indigenous Law Bulletin under the supervision of the Editor, and literature reviews in research areas responsible to the Centre Director.
