Professor Jane Rindsberg trains her upper-class interviewing and counseling students in the skills that all effective legal advocates need. Professor Rindsberg also serves as chair of RWU’s Clerkship Committee, assisting students who are considering judicial clerkships, and providing support for those who eventually apply for the positions.

Professor Rindsberg incorporates her extensive legal background into her classroom work. As an associate at Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue in Cleveland, Professor Rindsberg defended wrongful termination and discrimination actions for corporate clients and represented debtors and creditors in complex bankruptcy litigation.

Earlier in her career, Professor Rindsberg served as Assistant General Counsel for Columbus-America Discovery Group, the company that located the wreck of the SS Central America, a side-wheel steamship that sank 200 miles off the Carolina coast in a hurricane in 1857, taking with it more than 400 passengers and several tons of Gold Rush Era treasure. The company’s ground-breaking efforts to develop the technology necessary to recover the gold, and the subsequent ten years of ground-breaking litigation to keep it, are recounted in The New York Times bestseller Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea by Gary Kinder.
