First Generation Professionals Program

The mission of the First Generation Professionals (FGP) is to foster an inclusive community that supports first-generation, economically underrepresented, and/or non-traditional law students as well as their support networks. In furtherance of these goals, FGP coordinates mentoring, networking, and social events.

What’s a first-gen? A first-generation (first-gen) student is a law student who is the first in their family to pursue graduate school and/or college. First-generation may also refer to students who are the first in their families to pursue an education in the United States. Family is loosely defined, and FGP truly welcomes individuals from all backgrounds
