The Investor Advocacy Clinic welcomes Mary Ann Hanke to our fall 2016 semester. A graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology with an industrial engineering degree, Hanke plans to practice business litigation upon graduation in May 2017. Hanke joined the clinic because it is one of the few opportunities in law school for both experiential learning and continuous feedback. She wanted to work directly with clients from the beginning to end of a case and gain practical knowledge and experience in securities law and arbitration.
When asked about how the Investor Advocacy Clinic helps investors, Hanke said
“The importance of the clinic really dawned on me when we started getting cases. I realized how important it is for a clinic like this to take on cases that may not be a priority for other law firms. To each client, his or her claim is larger than life. It is important for these individuals to have legal options for a legitimate claim, regardless of the amount of the loss.”
