Friday, May 5th

4:15 PM- 5:30 PM

Not all student loan debt is created equal. Enhance your practice by assisting new and past clients with student loan debt. In “Debunked: Dischargeability of Student Loans,” Bethany Lape and Austin Smith explore recent case law that challenges this well-known myth and common scenarios that you will encounter. You will learn how to simplify the process with a new tool in Best Case® Bankruptcy which can help identify next steps using built-in tools and documents. Plus, review the Jurisdictional Scorecard™ to learn the likelihood of discharging student loan debt in your area.

More About Our Presenters:

avatar for Austin Smith

Austin Smith

Austin Smith is a litigator who focuses on discharging private student loans in bankruptcy.  Smith’s article, The Misinterpretation of 11 USC 523(a)(8), was foundational in articulating the proper scope and application of the student loan non-dischargeability provision of the Bankruptcy Code, and its arguments and reasoning have been adopted by bankruptcy courts all across the country.  Smith’s work on behalf of debtors has been profiled by the Wall Street Journal, NPR, ABC News, Fox News, The Financial Times, the National Law Journal, the American Bankruptcy Institute, and more.
