UNSW Law students have the opportunity to go on exchange to Indonesia through two main programs run by the Australian Consortium for In Country Indonesian Studies (ACICIS):
ACICIS was established over 20 years ago and is recognised as the premier provider of Indonesian in country studies for Australian studies. The consortium includes 25 universities in Australia, including UNSW. Launched in 1994, ACICIS is the longest running provider of in-country Indonesian study programs in Australia. Melissa Crouch was on the Advisory Board that established the Indonesian Law practicum. The program enables UNSW Law students to undertake this course as an internship credited towards their degree. The Law Professional Practicum course includes two full-weeks of coursework and field trips; intensive Indonesian language program; and four-week internship in Indonesia. Students will be required to write a research essay, and undertake a reflective essay based on their internship. There are student scholarships available for this program via New Colombo Plan funding.
