Discharging Student Loans in Bankruptcy.
Ahart, Alan M.
American Bankruptcy Law Journal, v52 p201-12 Sum 1978
Section 439A of the Education Amendments of 1976 restricts the dischargeability of federal student loans to cases of "undue hardship." The origin, applications, and legal procedures involved in Section 439A and in Section 523(a) of the new Bankruptcy Code are examined and suggestions are made for determining the meaning of "undue hardship."
