First Generation Professionals (FGP) is a student-led group that supports incoming students who are the first in their families to attend graduate or professional school, as well as those from lower-income or working-class backgrounds. We welcome all who identify as “First Generation Professionals” to join our community and encourage everyone who is interested in supporting our work to become involved.
We aim to facilitate the transition and integration of first-generation law students through mentorship with peers and alumni, career advising, and social activities. Our board is comprised of 2L and 3L students who have been through this process, benefited from their experiences with FGP, and are eager to pass on the torch to all of you.
