Lynn M. Mckeel joined the Investor Advocacy Clinic for a second semester in fall 2018. Mckeel was born and raised in Palm Beach County, Florida and lived in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and New Orleans, Louisiana before settling in Atlanta, Georgia.
She enthusiastically begins her second semester with the Georgia State College of Law Investor Advocacy Clinic where she plans to continue her investor education work and represent investors. McKeel is scheduled to graduate in December 2018 and sit for the February 2019 Georgia Bar Examination.
When Lynn is not in school she works full time as a paralegal at a commercial litigation firm in West Midtown, Atlanta. She also leads a group of teenage girls in the Wilderness Works/City Camp non-profit focusing on outdoor leadership, habitat conservation, and wilderness skills such as hiking, camping, rock climbing, and kayaking.
She originally joined the Clinic to learn about available resources for defrauded investors and spread awareness to communities without adequate representation. Mckeel says “The Clinic is important to me because it helps connect the theoretical study of law with the real world practice and implications of law. I returned to the Clinic because I love the client interaction and the investigatory work associated with researching the client’s claims.”
