Graduating with Debt: Student Loans under the Bankruptcy Code introduced readers to the basics of student loan debt – now totaling nearly 1.3 trillion and climbing – including different types of loans and loan-forgiveness programs, delinquency and default, and administrative and nonjudicial remedies for borrowers having trouble repaying their loans.
This revised and expanded edition highlights a number of significant changes in one of the most volatile and important consumer debt arenas. Included are discussions about revised procedures on loan forgiveness and rehabilitation, and new caselaw – such as conflicting court decisions about the scope of § 523(a)(8)(A)(ii) and the Brunner test.
The book also includes expanded coverage of special issues in chapter 13 cases, updates on litigation issues, legislative initiatives regarding student loan debt forgiveness, and much more. This comprehensive guide is a must for any practitioner involved in a student loan case.
