2023 Spring Legal Meeting

April 20, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm


Online Registration is Closed. To register email Stefanie Gramm, sgramm@ncher.org

NCHER will hold the Spring Legal Meeting on Thursday, April 20, 2023 at the law offices of Ballard Spahr (1735 Market Street, 51st Floor) in Philadelphia, PA. This one-day meeting should be of interest to lawyers and non-lawyers alike. The registration fee is $400 for members and $500 for nonmembers. For planning purposes, you can assume that the meeting will start at 9:00 am and end by 5:00 pm. There are a number of hotels within walking distance of the law firm. For registration information, including a non-exclusive list of hotels, visit the NCHER website.

While the program planning committee is currently finalizing the agenda, we expect the agenda will include the following sessions:

• A Washington Update that will discuss recent developments around federal student loan forgiveness and the new income driven repayment plan.
• An update on the Consumer Protection Financial Bureau, including a discussion of the discussion of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit challenging the Bureau’s structure.
• A discussion of the U.S. Department of Education’s recent guidance on third party servicing, and several guarantor-related matters such as special mandatory assignment, Operation Fresh Start, and voluntary flexible agreements.
• Sessions on privacy and security developments, including new state rules; the impact of new advances in artificial intelligence; bankruptcy developments; new Telephone Consumer Protection Act and related state rules; and insurance (what’s available and how much protection is provided).

NCHER is currently making arrangements for members to attend the Spring Legal Meeting remotely, though registrants should be aware that active participation for remote registrants will be limited. Please indicate when registering whether you will attend in person or virtually. If you have any questions, please contact Shelly Repp (srepp@ncher.org; 202-494-0948).

We look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia!
