Dress for Quinn Emanuel dinner

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Aug 25, 2011 12:37 pm

Can anyone who has been to a dinner with Quinn Emanuel shed some light on how attorneys and students were dressed? I'm assuming business casual (i.e. slacks) but not a suit. Is this right?

Thanks!

I went business casual; suit with no tie. Most of the folks who came we in slacks and a shirt, the attorneys were dressed the same as during the interviews. I don't think it much mattered to them what you wore.

I attended a Quinn dinner. I wore jeans and a dress shirt and it was fine. Some students were in business casual. The attorneys ranged from casual to business casual. Some even in shorts.

I went to a QE "dinner" that was immediately after OCI ended, and almost all the students were still in suits, just with no jacket. The lawyers were generally in jeans. The reception was immediately adjacent to a hotel pool. Really weird experience.

They didn't seem to care what you wore. Everyone wore different stuff.

OMG I had to meet with people and stand and talk with them. There was a freaking POOL nearby!

:roll:

OP - I've worn full suit and suit with no tie and more casual suit while kicking it with the ladies and gents of QE. All have been fine. They wore jeans, khakis, and one guy had a sweatshirt on.

Cool. Thanks. I wore jeans and it was fine. Planning on business casual for the callback.
