Student loans have received considerable attention in the national media lately. State and federal regulators have taken notice too. At both the state and federal levels, regulators have brought a number of enforcement actions against those in the student loan market over the past year, with notable enforcement trends developing. Citing concerns about less robust federal regulatory enforcement and ceding to pressure from outside interest groups, many state legislatures have adopted laws requiring student loan servicers to obtain licenses. Student loan servicers and secondary market investors may be subject to unique practice requirements contained within many of these laws. Given the increased attention from regulators, it is unsurprising that some financial and educational institutions have looked at loan alternatives like income share agreements as a possible solution.

Join members of Mayer Brown’s Consumer Financial Services practice as they discuss recent legal and regulatory developments in the education finance marketplace and the development of student loan alternatives.
