Launched in 2012, the Investor Rights Clinic represents under-served investors in securities arbitration claims against their brokers before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the largest forum for arbitration of securities claims in the United States. Most of the Clinic's clients are retirees with limited income and assets and no meaningful prior investment experience. In addition to individual claims, the Clinic seeks to improve the law and give voice to small investors through strategies such as comment letters on rules proposed by federal and state regulators, amicus briefs and advocacy on Capitol Hill. The Clinic also conducts financial literacy and community education focused primarily on preventing fraudulent investment schemes and broker misconduct targeting the elderly and other vulnerable populations.
Offered as a one-semester, six credit course, the Clinic provides second and third-year law students with the opportunity to develop a range of professional and legal skills including client interviewing and counseling, fact development and analysis, motion practice, negotiation, and oral and written arbitration advocacy skills. The Clinic has a classroom component where students learn lawyering skills and substantive law on federal and state securities law and broker-dealer regulation. For the field component, students work in teams on all aspects of the arbitration from intake to final settlement or arbitration.
The Associate Director/Lecturer in Law will join the vibrant and supportive Miami Law clinical program, consistently ranked in the top 30 on U.S. News and World Reports list of best clinical training programs. The Associate Director/Lecturer in Law will have the opportunity to work with the Director to articulate a vision to take the Investor Right Clinic's strong foundation to the next level and build on the Clinic's national reputation. In collaboration with the Director, the Associate Director/Lecturer in Law will run all aspects of the clinic including the teaching of clinic classes, supervising students, managing claims and projects, and representing clients in arbitration matters. The position is designed for a lawyer with practice or law clinical experience in securities law or related fields. The candidate should have teaching experience or a demonstrated interest in pursuing a career in law school clinical teaching. The Associate Director/Lecturer in Law will have the opportunity to participate in the academic life of the law school and in relevant academic and advocacy conferences.
