In 2019, bankruptcy courts around the United States grappled with the question of what circumstances must exist to discharge student loan debt? Most courts use the three-factor Brunner Test to answer this question and determine eligibility. In a CLE-accredited webinar, Steve Werth with SulmeyerKupetz and Maggie Bordeaux with Public Counsel will explore the contours of recent 2019 court decisions and patterns that will allow, or prevent loan dischargeability.
The webinar will address:
- Recent cases in which student loan debt has and has not been discharged.
- The Brunner test used by bankruptcy courts to discharge such debt.
- Recurring issues that may be dispositive in either direction.
“Putting the Brunner to the Test: How Bankruptcy Courts Decide Undue Hardship in Student Loan Debt Cases” will be held on January 29 at 11am PST. Register now.
