In recent months, the U.S. Department of Education has debuted an ambitious and sweeping regulatory agenda for institutions of higher education. On December 14, 2021, Aaron Lacey, the Chair of Thompson Coburn’s Higher Education practice, will host a 90-minute webinar during which he will examine the range of expansions, revisions, and revivals that presently are underway. The presenter will discuss likely revisions to the rules governing the borrower defense framework, closed school loan discharges, and Title IX, among others. He also will speculate regarding additional rulemaking activity that is on the horizon, and will discuss likely timelines for proposed and final rules.
The live presentation of this webinar was approved for 1.5 hours of general CLE credit in California and Illinois and 1.8 hours of general CLE credit in Missouri. The webinar was also approved for 1.5 hours of general-experienced and general-transitional CLE in New York. 1.5 hours of general CLE credit is pending in Texas.
