Jane E. Rindsberg
Jane Rindsberg 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.
She incorporates her extensive legal background into her work. As an associate at Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue in Cleveland, she defended wrongful termination and discrimination actions for corporate clients and represented debtors and creditors in complex bankruptcy litigation.
Earlier in her career, she 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 Seaby Gary Kinder.
