What the New Arbitration Rule Means for Litigating Against For-Profit Schools
While many for-profit schools previously tried to insulate themselves from lawsuits using forced arbitration clauses and class action bans, a rule that went into effect in October 2018 conditions school participation in the federal student loan program on agreement not to enforce these clauses against students with consumer claims. The Department has proposed rescinding the rule, but the soonest that would happen is July 2020 - so there is a short window for many students to sue in court.Join the experts from the Project on Predatory Student Lending and the National Consumer Law Center to hear what the new limits on forced arbitration mean for consumer litigation against predatory schools, what types of claims students may bring, and pitfalls to watch out for.
