    The Problem - OUR Problem of Student Loan Debt Seen Through the Eyes of Judges, Lawyers, and Debtors

    This program begins a dialogue with our community on the legal and social issue of the enormous economic bubble created by student loan debt in our country. Virtually every student starting his or her education faces this problem, and the vast majority of students shoulder a portion of this problem upon completion of their education. The problem is ultimately a matter for bankruptcy law and bankruptcy courts, but for us to find a long-term solution, other legal remedies and tools may need to be considered. This program looks at the legal tools and remedies, to the extent they exist, addressing this growing debt problem in our country. The program dialogue is also intended to challenge us to look around the corner for other solutions we as a society may wish to consider in dealing with this issue in the future.


    More information and registration to follow.

    CLE  program approval pending by the Supreme Court of Ohio.

    Cancellations received by 5:00 p.m., three business days prior to the seminar will receive a full refund; less than three business days prior to the seminar will be refunded less a $25 administrative fee;no shows will not receive a refund.

    Dealing with Exonerees and Returning Citizens in Our Criminal Justice System: A Dialogue with Our Community

    A synopsis of the program follows:

    Greater Cleveland now has the dubious distinction of being home to the longest wrongly incarcerated person in the country. We may well ask: How did this happen? The more difficult question to answer is: What are we as a community going to do about it? After all, it was we “the State” who made the mistake. It seems only fair and just that we “the State” now correct the mistake. This program will examine how our fellow Ohio citizens came to be wrongly incarcerated, how certain lawyers advocated successfully for their release, and how our community responded – or didn't. This program is designed to hear the views of a broad cross-section of the community that touches the issue of exonerees and returning citizens: the judicial branch, the legal community, the reentry community, the faith-based community, and the media. This program is also designed to begin a community dialogue on this issue with the intent that we revisit this discussion annually to assess the progress we have made. It is after all we “the State” who will create the solutions for proper redress for our exonerees and other returning citizens. It is in the end up to us, we “the Community,” to remedy this wrong.


    Please stay tuned as more information and online registration will follow in the next month or so.

    Professor Susan Becker – Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Professor Jonathan Entin – Case Western Reserve University School of Law Alana Jochum – Equality Ohio Carole Rendon – First Assistant United States Attorney, Northern District of Ohio
