When I asked people what they thought about London and how I should prepare for my ten weeks abroad, they talked about rainy days, tea, Big Ben, the Royal Family and Indian food. Given that everyone repeated the same five things about London, I was concerned that I had no idea what I was getting myself into, and that I was flying “across the pond” into the unknown. To be fair, as I look back, I did drink a lot of tea, I ran past Big Ben a few times, I saw the Queen at a firm event, and I had Indian food twice. However, I was right in that my summer in London at Latham & Watkins was unlike anything I could have imagined it to be.
