AALAM hosts “What Not to Wear” event at Boston tailor shop

Issue May 2010

The Asian-American Lawyers Association of Massachusetts attracted nearly 30 people to an event on March 24 called "What Not to Wear - How to Make a Good Impression in Today's Legal Market."

A panel of speakers gave advice what not to wear and what not to do in professional situations. Attendees networked and were fitted by experts at 9tailors LLC studios, a Boston-based "design-it-yourself" custom clothing company where the event was held.

Panelists included Mandi Araujo LeBeau, a business etiquette consultant for Pardon Me Inc. and director of Career Services at New England Law | Boston; Samantha Shih, founder, 9tailors LLC; Brion Bickerton, a legal recruiter with Major Lindsey & Africa | Boston; and Katie Thatcher, career advisor at Northeastern University School of Law and formerly director of recruiting at Hinckley, Allen & Snyder LLP and legal recruitment manager at Ropes & Gray LLP.

AALAM founders Marian Tse of Goodwin Procter LLP and Diane Young-Spitzer of the Massachusetts Securities Division also attended.
