ABI To Hold All-Day Program on the Next Big Thing, the Dischargeability of Student Loan Debt

posted by Nathalie Martin

College photo On Friday, November 15, 2013, the American Bankruptcy Institute will hold a conference in its Alexandria Virginia Offices, and by webinar, entitled You Can’t Discharge Student Loans in Bankruptcy – Or Can You? The conference will run from 9:30 a. m. to 3:30 p.m., and will be held at 66 Canal Center Plaza, Suite 600 in Alexandria, Virginia.  You can also participate remotely.  More information can be found here.   When we say the next BIG thing, we aren’t kidding, as this graphed Mother Jones article shows. 

Remarkably, student loan debt now exceeds auto and credit card debt. This program will help you learn whether bankruptcy law is keeping up with the Jones’s so to speak.
