NBC Nightly News Reports on USF Law Clinic

June 01, 2009

The USF School of Law's Investor Justice Clinic is receiving national attention for its work on behalf of small investors.

The May 30 broadcast of NBC Nightly News included a segment on the clinic as part of the program's "Seeking Solutions" series about how Americans are helping eachother through difficult economic times. The piece includes interviews with Professor Robert Talbot, May Chang '09, and Cru Ulrich 3L, as well as several clinic clients.

Led by Talbot, students in the clinic represent individuals who have fallen victim to a host of costly investment and lending schemes. The individuals served by the clinic could not otherwise secure legal representation because their losses would be too small for a lawyer to take on. Cases are handled by USF law students who have special training in the field and work under the direct supervision of Talbot and several adjunct professors.
