"The Certainty of Hopelessness": Are Courts too Harsh toward Bankrupt Student Loan Debtors?
Fossey, Richard
Journal of Law and Education, v26 n3 p29-48 Jul 1997
In most cases, individuals filing for bankruptcy to discharge student loans are those who encountered difficult life circumstances, not middle-class college graduates who refused to pay for their education. Many courts have interpreted the Bankruptcy Code's "undue hardship" provisions too harshly and without compassion. (70 footnotes) (MLF)
