Utah Law Review- Financing the Future: The Law and Politics of Student Debt in American Higher Education

October 20 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Financing the Future: The Law and Politics of Student Debt in American Higher Education

8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., S.J. Quinney College of Law, Level 6
After home mortgages, student loans are now the second largest consumer finance market in the country. Student debt is reshaping the way the American middle class approaches higher education, work, purchasing a home, and even retirement. Law schools in particular are a bellwether in the student loan debate. During the Obama administration Congress, the Department of Education, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau adopted a variety of limited legal reforms to student lending. Despite these limited reforms student debt still looms large over the future of millions of Americans. Will the Trump administration signal a shift in student lending? What does the future hold for America’s struggling student borrowers?
