M&A there has the biggest rainmakers and up and coming hotshots like Theodore.

Very decent hours and lax adherence to billable targets.

Best increments and bonuses because other departments depend on them.

Not a SUSS grad but the reality is that legal industry remains quite elitist when it comes to opportunities within the industry. Perception remains that suss law is not of comparable quality so i encourage you to think beyond just the sch curriculum (which i think is far from rigourius for one to get good grasp of law) and consider if you are prepared to work extra hard in practice to prove that you can make it (at least quality wise) in the industry. Otherwise you will end up stuck in small law firms and your opportunities as a lawyer will be limited graduating from a "comminity law focused" law sch.

Default Moving from in-house back to practice

Was formerly from big 4 construction practice (did mainly disputes, but some front end work). Spent 4 years in practice and moved inhouse for 1.5 year. Is there a chance to move back to practice to a front-end role? don't mind a cut in PQE

Big 4 always need warm bodies. If you can hit the ground running, I'm sure they will take you in.

Otherwise can try the mid tier construction teams like Harry E, Rodyk.
