Would any 2nd year or higher students like to reseach this as a short paid project?  If so please email me at  Please include an estimate of how many hours you think it would take, pay rate requirements, where you are attending, year and attach a resume.  Thanks.

I need some help researching state law.  I'm trying to identify which states allow student loan debtors to assert as defense against repayment actions against loan originators or successors under the FTC Holder-In-Due-Course Rule 16 C.F.R. 433.2(a) (1988).

So far I've identified the following:

Appear to allow:


 GA (Bartels v. Alabama Commercial College, US Ct. of Appeals, 11th circuit, No. 94-8607, 1995)

 OH (LaPoint v. Secretary of Educ, No. C-3-93-56 (S.D. Ohio filed Dec. 21, 1994))

 DC (Armstrong v. Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training Inc, Supreme Ct, 99-395)



Can anyone help verify these an identify other states?  I would like to know what the status is in all 50 if possible.

Thanks everyone.

Thanks for the reply and recommendation Andrew.  I'm a bit confused with Lexis.  Don't law students have access through the library?  This would be a telecommuting position so it's might come in handy.  What are the library restrictions?

Job Search / Legal Research Question for Students and New Grads
« on: September 07, 2003, 10:44:02 AM »
Hi Everyone:

I am a businessman reading some of the threads here trying to get some understanding of the employment options for law students.  I'm currently evaluating the prospect of hiring some law students on a per diem basis to do legal research and writing of different projects via telecommuting and was hoping to get some input on what might appeal to current law students.

The work itself would involve telephone interviewing of a client and legal research of appropriate state laws using lexis and other resources to ascertain whether or not an actionable case exists and, if affirmative, then to write up a case summary describing the laws violated and documenting client's damages.  The work would be related to civil/class action/consumer protection type practice.  To be sure the work is done properly I will be having a licensed attorney review it.

I think this would be a fun job for interested students and would appreciate some feedback.

1) What year student would be able to do a good job on the research and writing?

2) What would be the expected range of hourly pay for a student to do this?

3) Are there any other considerations and things I should look for in hiring someone to do this kind of work?

Thank you for your help.
