Toby Merrill Celebrates Accomplishments of Harvard Project

Harvard Law's Project on Predatory Student Lending, led by former Skadden fellow Toby Merrill ('12), has handled significant cases in the year since its expansion. For example, it achieved a federal court victory ordering the Education Department to adjudicate within 90 days the borrower defenses of a client who has asserted for years that her student debt was unenforceable because of a for-profit college's fraud. The victory was featured in The New York Times ("U.S. Halts New Rules Aimed at Abuses by For-Profit Colleges, "June 14).
