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.
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 Advocate
, Rick 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!
