Episode Notes

A solid education is a vital part of being a lawyer, but student loan debt can leave young lawyers crippled long after their education ends and their career begins. In this report from On The Road at ABA Annual Meeting 2018, host Jason Tashea talks to Bruce Brotine, Lyssa Thaden, and Zach Weber about how young lawyers can manage student loan debt during and after law school. They also discuss why students should look at refinancing as an option, the responsibility of schools to their students, and the realities of Public Service Loan Forgiveness.
