Toby Merrill Discusses Case Against For-Profit School Chain

Toby Merrill Discusses Case Against For-Profit School Chain Skadden Fellow Toby Merrill was quoted in a Boston Globe article about a case accusing a chain of for-profit colleges of using "aggressive and deceptive marketing and loan tactics to increase enrollments and boost profits" ("Coakley Sues For-Profit College Operator," April 3). Toby, a lawyer at the Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School, said she has offered legal assistance to many former students of the school who were dissatisfied and unable to repay loans. "There’s a lot of high pressure predatory practices and fraud directed at people who are definitionally the least able to understand it," she said. "These are people who have not been successful in traditional educational settings."
