The Securities Law Clinic provides students with an opportunity to develop fundamental investigatory and advocacy skills in the context of the substantive laws governing investments.
The Securities Law Clinic fills a need in the largely rural “Southern Tier” region of upstate New York, where the public does not generally have access to an extensive private bar with experience in investor rights. A focus of the Securities Law Clinic is representation of public investors in disputes subject to arbitration at the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. As part of its community outreach, the Securities Law Clinic also provides public education as to investment fraud, with particular attention to investment schemes targeting the elderly and retirees.
“[We] would like to express our sincere thanks for all the hard work both yourself and the students put into our case. Your dedication and hard work has brought this stressful situation to an end. We understand the amount of work and research put into our case by the students and yourself in addition to the studies the students must complete each day…. [We] were not sure where to turn, however, your expertise and the knowledge of the students was of great value.” (from a client of the Cornell Securities Law Clinic)Read More About The Clinic
