New York City’s Rent Freeze Program (RFP) freezes the rents paid by lower-income elderly and disabled rent-regulated tenants—in many cases for decades—and provides landlords with tax credits to cover the portion of the legal regulated rent not being paid by the tenant.
Law students who attended the Public Meeting of the Investor Advisory Committee at the SEC
Cardozo Securities Arbitration Clinic students Armando Martinez '19, Cristiana Modesti '18 and Ishara Quick '19 attended the Public Meeting of the Investor Advisory Committee on March 8, 2018, at the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C. At the meeting, the law school clinic's work and role in the realm of investor advocacy was discussed.
The committee acknowledged the clinic's work and discussed providing SEC funding of law school clinics who represent small investors and do investor advocacy work. The students then met directly with three of the SEC Commissioners, with members of the Division of Enforcement, and with the Investor Advocate to discuss their work. The chairman of the SEC greeted the students that morning.
