The Wake Forest Law Review has named its annual banquet after Brooks Pierce partner Dan McGinn. The surprise announcement was made at the Law Review’s 2016 event, which was held April 15.
Suzanne Reynolds, dean of the Wake Forest University School of Law, praised McGinn, recounting tales of his scholarship as a student and his success as a lawyer.
“Our law school is incredibly proud of Dan McGinn, as I know his partners are,” Reynolds said. “He is an example of what we hope every student of the law will strive to be.”
McGinn, a labor and employment lawyer, received his bachelor’s degree from Wake Forest University in 1964 and his juris doctorate from Wake Forest University School of Law in 1967. He continues to give back to his alma mater, chairing the Wake Forest University School of Law Alumni Council from 1996-1997 and serving several terms as a member of the Wake Forest University School of Law Board of Visitors.
“I was surprised and humbled to have received this recognition,” said McGinn. “Wake Forest University School of Law played such a significant role in shaping who I am as an attorney. It has been my privilege to give back to the school and its students, and I feel honored that the school would acknowledge me in this way.”
