In recent years, litigation brought by the National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts (NCSLT) has become an epidemic. Defending these cases can be fun and rewarding. Often, consumers are faced with a lawsuit for tens of thousands of dollars on a loan they barely remember, from a trust they have never heard from. The deficiencies in the collectors’ proof have been well documented. 

This webinar will highlight recent developments in these cases and show how you can use these developments to more effectively defend your consumers in NCSLT lawsuits and mine these cases for affirmative claims you can bring on a contingency. Please note that this webinar will cover topics not addressed in the February 2017 webinar on defending NCSLT cases. 

What You Will Learn

• How to handle litigation among the major players involved in the NCSLT trusts. 
• How to use exhibits from the major player litigation to better defend NCSLT cases and to use for affirmative claims.
• How to make money defending NCSLT lawsuits with an eye towards asserting affirmative claims.
