Interacting with the web of private student loan debt holders and debt collectors continues to be a developing part of practice for consumer attorneys. To litigate this area of law, one needs to keep up to date with the latest news in defending claims by the National Collegiate Student Loan Trust (NCSLT), Transworld Systems, and AES. 

This webinar will highlight two common winning defenses: statute of limitations and suits filed in an improper venue or without notice. This intermediate webinar is geared to individuals who already have knowledge about NCT and its debt collection practices. 

What You Will Learn

•    How to investigate claims
•    How to prepare winning defenses on the statute of limitations and improper notice/venue
•    How to follow up with a winning FDCPA claim
