Two Generations of Elder Law Clinic Students Work to Protect Investors

Retirees and people approaching retirement are quite concerned about protecting their investments, if they are lucky enough to have any.  So, retirement income security is a topic that students learn about in The Elder Law Clinic.

Jenna Coogle and Rick Fleming


This past summer, Jenna Coogle (’17) - who was a clinic student in the spring – worked in Washington DC at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  She was fortunate to spend part of that time assisting the Investor AdvocateRick Fleming (’94).  Back in 1993, Mr. Fleming was also a student in Wake Forest’s Elder Law Clinic.  He was appointed in 2014 as the first Investor Advocate for the SEC.  Two generations of advocates for older adults!
