You are invited to join us for a delicious three-course meal at the Annual Etiquette Dinner at the Carolina Club. The evening will combine a seated dinner and a dessert reception. As a result of a generous donation from McGuireWoods, the three-course meal is provided at a cost to you of only $5.00. (Business attire is required.)

The McGuireWoods attorneys and representatives joining us include:

  • Lawrence Cameron, 2010, Associate, Government Investigations & White Collar Litigation
  • Amanda Colley, 2015, Associate, Debt Finance

Why Attend?
Our speaker, Shawn McKenna, Director of Employer Outreach, will discuss the basic rules of dinning etiquette and then move beyond to the basic rules of business etiquette, including how to carry on a conversation at the table and how to avoid missteps during an interview meal or reception. The evening will combine a seated dinner and a dessert reception. During the dessert portion of the evening, you will have a chance to practice what you just learned from Shawn’s presentation as you mix and mingle with fellow students and attorneys from McGuireWoods. You will come away from the event with a sense of confidence in your ability to impress employers and clients.

How Do You Register?
Simply bring your $5 payment (cash only) to the CDO ASAP. You will be able to choose from beef, chicken, or vegetarian entrees when you bring your payment to the CDO.

Do NOT register in Symplicity. Questions should be directed to Shawn McKenna or Laina Balafas in the CDO. Registration is open now through February 22. Space is limited, therefore, 2Ls and 3Ls interested in attending should contact Laina Balafas.
