Having spent almost a decade at Jones Day, DLA Piper, and King & Spaulding, since graduating from Duke Law in 2002, David Grenardo (currently an associate professor at St. Mary's University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas) knows a thing or two about what it takes to succeed in Big Law. But "it" might be different from what you think. Mr. Grenardo's thesis is that by treating others with dignity and courtesy, lawyers achieve the greatest benefits overall for themselves, their clients, and the legal system as a whole. Please join us for an entertaining and thought-provoking look at civility and success in the legal profession today. Questions about the realities of firm practice, ethics, and why Mr. Grenardo chose to be a lawyer rather than a pro football player are welcome! Lunch will be provided.
