Private Student Loan Dischargeability In Bankruptcy: A New Perspective – Free MCLE 10/19

PDF iconThursday, October 19, 2017, Noon to 1:00pm, Private Student Loan Dischargeability In Bankruptcy: A New Perspective
Presented by James Michel
San Francisco Consumer Protection and Debt Relief Lawyer
1 Hour free Participatory MCLE Credit

It is commonly believed that student loan debt is not affected by the bankruptcy discharge. A more correct statement would be that for most people who file bankruptcy petitions, some educational debts are not discharged unless the petitioner successfully obtains a finding from the bankruptcy court that the debt is a hardship to the borrower. In reality, some educational debt does not fit within the statutory definition and is discharged along with regular debt, without any finding of hardship. This talk will examine the categories of educational benefits or loans under the relevant statutes and a few recent decisions concerning privately guaranteed student loans.Oct 19 2017 Bankruptcy MCLE Flyer

LexisAdvance Week: Tip #1

LexisAdvance Tip #1 – How to save your results screen to use it in future sessions:

Move the cursor over the blue highlighted link and press Ctrl and C together.

Open a Word document, email, etc. where you will save the link that you copied. Press Ctrl and V together to paste it…

https://advance.lexis.com/api/permalink/8440976e-7f3b-4b43-9062-b15f68296d5e/?context=1000516

Then save this document or email for future use. Note that if it is a Word document, you will need to save it to a flash drive, because the Law Library’s computers reset after each session.

The next time you are logged in to LexisAdvance at the law library, you can paste this link from where you saved it into the URL field and press “enter” to arrive at your previous session’s search results.
