CLE: Overview of Federal Policy on Student Loans and Debt Relief

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

Please join us on Wednesday October 3, 2018 at the Boston Bar Association for a comprehensive program on the history of student aid in higher education, with a focus on the dischargeablity of student loans in bankruptcy and current tax policy affecting loan repayment. 

Part I of this 3 hour CLE, takes a look at the past, present, and future of student loans in America.  How did we go from the G.I. Bill and other grant-based initiates to the loan-dominant model that we have today?  What changes, if any, can we reasonably expect to occur in the next 5, 10, or 15 years of student loan policy? 

Part II of the program focus on the history of the student loan discharge in bankruptcy and features a case study of a recent dischargeability trial in Massachusetts bankruptcy court. 

Part III of the program discusses how loan interest payments and debt forgiveness are currently treated under the Internal Revenue Code and some interesting efforts by employers to tie a 401(k) company match to an employee’s loan payments.
