W. Dowdy White returned to the Investor Advocacy Clinic for a second semester in fall 2018.
White is a third year law student who is also pursuing a Masters Degree in Public Administration in the Georgia State University Andrew Young School of Policy Studies. Upon graduation in May 2019, White will begin work at an Atlanta law firm.
White believes that the clinic is important
“because investors often do not have the means to employ an attorney to represent them in complicated FINRA matters. We are able to use our resources and education to represent our clients. We are also able to gain valuable litigation experience.”
White’s decision to return to the clinic was informed by his work the prior semester. He says:
” I decided to return to the clinic because representing actual clients surpasses what you can learn in a classroom. Practical experience is invaluable entering the legal profession.”
