What Are We Learning About For-Profit Education? - Podcast

Administrative Law & Regulation Practice Group Podcast
Lucas Townsend February 07, 2017

During the Obama administration, the Department of Education promulgated a host of rules aimed specifically at for-profit educational institutions, which enroll over a million students. For instance, the Obama Department of Education has required for-profit schools to show that graduates are spending less than 20% of their postgraduate discretionary incomes on student loan repayment as a condition of for-profit schools’ continued eligibility for federal financial aid dollars. Another rule threatens to make it substantially easier for graduates of for-profit schools to demand student loan forgiveness. Now that President Trump has taken office, will his administration change course on these regulations? What are the options if his administration wishes to do so, and how feasible are they for the sector?

Lucas Townsend, a partner at Gibson Dunn with substantial experience litigating agency challenges, surveyed some of the most significant regulations. He discussed options for the Trump administration or Congress to withdraw or alter these actions.

16th Annual Barbara K. Olson Memorial Lecture - Event Audio/Video

2016 National Lawyers Convention
Ben Sasse, Eugene B. Meyer November 23, 2016

On September 11, 2001, at the age of 45 and at the height of her professional and personal life, Barbara K. Olson was murdered in the terrorist attacks against the United States as a passenger on the hijacked American Airlines flight that was flown into the Pentagon. The Federalist Society believes that it is most fitting to dedicate an annual lecture on limited government and the spirit of freedom to the memory of Barbara Olson. She had a deep commitment to the rule of law and understood well the relationship between respecting limits on government power and the preservation of freedom. And, significantly, Barbara Olson was an individual who never took freedom for granted in her own life, even in her final terrifying moments-her inspiring and energetic human spirit is a testament to what one can achieve in a world that places a premium on human freedom. Solicitor General Theodore B. Olson delivered the first lecture in November 2001. The lecture series continued in following years with other notable individuals. In 2016, Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska delivered the lecture.

This lecture was delivered on November 18, 2016, during the 2016 National Lawyers Convention in Washington, DC.
