Meet Student Intern Michael McLaughlin

mclaughlinMichael McLaughlin is a student in the clinic’s inaugural Fall 2013 semester.  A native of Marietta, Georgia, Michael graduated from the University of Georgia in 2008.  Michael joined the clinic to learn more about working within a small law firm and to gain more experience working with clients.  He is especially pleased to be helping investors who wouldn’t otherwise be able to obtain legal representation due to the size of their claims.

Michael believes the clinic’s work is important “because, in addition to fulfilling a previously unmet legal need, it provides investment education — knowledge that many people don’t have and that schools don’t teach.  We get to help ensure that investors never need our services.”

Upon graduation in 2014, Michael will be joining the litigation practice section at the Jones Day law firm.
