    I worked at Bristows

    Pros

    - Great insight into the firm's practice areas, especially a more in-depth presentation and case study on their industry leading IP practice - Trainees/HR all very friendly - Speed networking a bit daunting but very fun and worthwhile!

    Cons

    Possibly not long enough to get a true insight into the firm and get to see what "real" work the firm undertakes
