Etiquette Dinner

The Law School Etiquette Dinner, sponsored by Law Partners, will take place Friday, January 30th at the Hinckley Alumni Center. A reception/"cocktail hour" will begin at 6:00 p.m. that evening. Attendees will be seated for dinner at 6:45 p.m. We are looking forward to an opportunity to socialize and get to know other students and spouses, to hear an interesting speaker, and to learn more about dinner and social etiquette.

The speaker is Candilyn Newell wife of Sweden's former US Ambassador. The focus of her presentation will be "Etiquette in Public and Personal Life". She will discuss dining etiquette, reception etiquette, business etiquette and interactions in daily life as illustrated with personal experiences and pragmatic applications.Be ready for a question and answer segment. Note cards and pencils will be provided on the table and gathered near the end of the presentation or you may raise your hand, which ever way you are most comfortable participating.

Dress is Semi- Formal or Sunday best whichever suits you best.

Tickets are limited, so purchase yours as soon as possible!

A pre-sale will be held for Law Partners from January 1st to January 14th. The cost of tickets for dues-paying Law Partners is $25 per couple and 30.00 per couple for non dues paying couples.
