We are pleased to announce that NACBA will be joining the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges (NCBJ) Conference for the first time!
Don’t miss NACBA’s Breakfast program at NCBJ in San Antonio, TX!
“GTT (‘Gone To Texas’): Leaving Student Loan Discharge Behind: Defining Student Loans, Treatment in chapter 13, and Non-bankruptcy Options”
With discharge of student loans under the undue hardship standard often requiring a “certainty of hopelessness”, this panel will instead focus on alternative methods that debtors and courts have addressed the ever mounting student loan crisis. This will include an examination of what actually constitutes an “educational benefit”, how the various repayment programs from the Department of Education can be integrated with bankruptcy, and non-bankruptcy causes of action and defenses, including Statutes of Limitation, burdens of proof regarding standing and consumer protection laws, can be used to provide borrowers relief.
In honor of the Heroes of the Alamo, most of whom were there because they didn’t want to pay their creditors back East, we’ll be giving away a Davy Crockett coonskin cap.
When: Tuesday, October 30, 2018
Time: 7:15am- 8:45am (ticketed event)
Presenters: Edward Boltz & Jim Haller
