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
Tracey DeMarco, 2009, Counsel, Products, Environmental and Mass Tort Litigation
Joan Dinsmore, 2006, Partner, Environmental and Mass Tort Litigation
James Ewing, Partner, Banking & Finance
Ruben Veliz, Ccounsel, Banking & Finance
Alison Rodgers, Attorney Recruiting Coordinator
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.
