Not Applicable because I was only here for work experience. (But they did reimburse our travel expenses which was good)

We were told of many events we can and should attend to build our 'network' and receive information on different types of law and law as a career.

Because they're a very diverse and ambitious law firm. I think if you want to do work experience there then you'll have an incredible time because you really get a feel of the place and can see yourself working there. So, this may help with you decisions in the future regarding what kind of career you want.
