Jacqueline Aleman will participate on “FINRA Customer Arbitration: The Defense Perspective” panel at the Investor Rights Clinic at the University of Miami School of Law on Tuesday, March 2, 2018. The panelists will answer questions about FINRA Arbitration by both the moderator and the students. While attending law school, Jacqueline participated in the Clinic for a semester and was invited to join again as a fellow.
The Investor Rights Clinic is a one-semester clinic staffed by second and third-year law students who represent under-served investors in securities arbitration claims against their brokers before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). FINRA is a self-regulatory organization that administers the largest forum for arbitration of securities claims in the U.S. In addition, the Clinic conducts financial literacy and outreach programs to educate the public about how to detect and avoid fraudulent investment schemes and broker misconduct, with particular attention to schemes targeting the elderly and retirees. As part of their clinical work, every student intern participates in preparing and presenting at least one educational outreach seminar each semester throughout South Florida.
