Following changes in student loan laws, regulations and programs has been a rollercoaster ride for the last three years. The Biden Administration has proposed numerous changes to federal student loan programs, including revising income-based repayment plans, changing rules for Public Service Loan Forgiveness, and a one-time loan cancellation plan. Millions of Americans are awaiting the Supreme Court’s decision, expected to be issued in June, on President’s Biden’s plan to cancel up to $20,000 in student loan debt for individual borrowers.
On June 2nd, Josh Rovenger, a Senior Attorney with the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland, will update us on the current landscape of student loan law. Josh is in a unique position to provide this update, as he was counsel for the coalition of over 70 borrower advocacy groups and legal services organizations that filed an Amicus Brief in Biden v. Nebraska, one of the student loan cancellation cases currently pending before the Supreme Court.
Josh currently works with the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland’s Economic Justice Practice Group, where he handles consumer cases including student loan discharges cases. In 2021, Josh was appointed as an alternate negotiator on the US Department of Education’s Affordability and Student Loans Negotiated Rulemaking Committee. Prior to joining Legal Aid, Josh worked in private practice and served as an attorney at the Project on Predatory Student Lending, an organization housed at the Harvard Legal Services Center.
