Abstract

"Part II considers the treatment of student loans in bankruptcy in Canada and outlines the main rationale behind the most recent round of reforms — namely government student loan programs' own debt relief measures. Part III evaluates this rationale by reviewing the student loan programs' own debt relief measures. Part IV goes on to review and summarize all of the reported decisions applying the current legislation on student loans in bankruptcy and highlights the key trends. Part V puts the Canadian discussion of the treatment of student loans in bankruptcy in context by highlighting the current state of the law and recent developments in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States. Part VI concludes with suggested reforms to the BIA."
