NYLS Clinical Research Institute Paper No. 07/08-16
This article details the interdisciplinary collaboration that the authors conceived, designed and implemented between Pace Law School's Securities Arbitration Clinic and graduate students in Pace's Business School. The clinic provides free legal representation to small investors who have arbitrable disputes with their brokerage firms. The collaboration provides J.D. students with experience in working with financial consultants and testifying experts while simultaneously providing business students with valuable experience analyzing portfolios after the customer has alleged misconduct by the broker. The article describes the models of collaboration other law/business clinics have used, details the advantages and disadvantages of those various models from an educational, professional and ethical perspective, and analyzes the impact of those factors of the model we ultimately chose.
