The Investor Advocacy Clinic is back for another academic year. Our fall 2016 student interns began their work on August 12, 2016 with a full day orientation and boot camp. Two of our interns are returning from prior semesters, Geoffrey Hafer and Michael Williford. Mary Ann Hanke, David Hsu, Majda Muhic, and Hector Rojas join the clinic for their first semester.
After learning about the clinic and its work in our orientation, the interns immediately jumped into their work. With over twelve active matters to kick off the semester, from investigating whether a claim exists to working with clients in a pending proceeding, the interns jumped in head first to the clinic’s work. In addition to their work with clients, the interns are also working on an educational project to help protect investors and evaluating several FINRA rule proposals for potential comment.
