Federal student loan programs are overly complex, making it a challenge for attorneys and advocates to provide meaningful assistance to borrowers. This is made even more difficult when the programs have undergone changes or updates following legislation or litigation. This webinar will bring you up to speed on where things stand with some of the most popular and critical federal student loan programs. 

What You Will Learn

  • How to navigate the federal student loan system
  • How to take advantage of critical programs like Public Service Loan Forgiveness, Borrower Defense to Repayment, and Disability Discharges 
  • How to issue spot student loan cases
