This week, we look at the albatross hanging around the necks of so many lawyers: student loan debt.

Kevin Rosenberg, a 2004 graduate of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, who, pro se, recently convinced the chief bankruptcy judge of New York’s Southern District to discharge more than $200,000 of his student loan debt, talks with legal education editor Karen Sloan about the decision that’s making waves in the bankruptcy world. Sloan also talks with Jason Iuliano, a professor at Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law who has spent 10 years studying student loan debt. He explains what Rosenberg’s case could mean for other student loan debtors.
