Hello! For our last podcast of the year 2012, the Library is proud to feature one of our John Jay Legal Services clinical programs – Pace Investor Rights Clinic, also known as PIRC. With the leadership, mentoring, and support of PIRC Director, Professor Jill I. Gross, and its Assistant Director, Visiting Professor Ed Pekarek, Pace students have the priceless opportunity to experience first-hand the ups and downs of representing clients in disputes involving modest means customers of securities brokerage firms.

Please join Ed and his 2011-2012 class of Kat Davydov, Dave Haimi, Charlie Italiano, Joe Jacobson, Kristen Mogavero, Jay Park, Gena Shingle, and Jaime Trevino, Jr., as they share experiences they gained and observations they made while representing real clients in arbitrations, mediations and negotiations, and being named National Champions of the 2011 FINRA / St. John’s Securities Dispute Resolution Triathlon as part of their clinical program at Pace. Student-interns in PIRC have recovered almost $130,000.00 for modest means New York investors in 2012 and well over one-half million dollars since its founding in 1997.
