A number of law schools provide legal representation through Securities Arbitration and Mediation Clinics. These Clinics help parties who have smaller claims and who are unable to hire a lawyer. Under the supervision of attorneys, law students will represent qualified parties in Arbitrations and Mediations before FINRA. Parties need to determine if they qualify for help from a Clinic as some clinics will not handle claims above a set amount, or if your household income is too high. Because qualifications may change, it is important to check directly with each Clinic for qualification information.
Investors who live outside of the states below may be able to request help from the Clinics. Please check directly with each Clinic for assistance.
