This three-hour CLE program will focus on various aspects of student loan law including a survey of eight circuit student loan hardship discharge cases as well as an update of new developments in other circuits. The second part of the program will focus on the nuts and bolts of student loan litigation and the do’s and don'ts of representing a debtor in a hardship discharge case. The final portion of the program will be a survey of the rehabilitation options outside of bankruptcy including the Loan Repayment Assistance Program, Administrative Hardship Discharge, the Ford Program and other government employee repayment assistance programs.
