THE FIRST GENERATION NETWORK

We are a non-profit organization aiming to reduce barriers law students face who are first in their family to complete post-secondary education. We work closely with law firms and student organizations to help first generation students prepare for their future legal careers.

OUR MISSION

We are a non-profit organization aiming to reduce barriers law students face who are first in their family to complete post-secondary education.

WHAT DO WE DO?

From networking events to our flagship Mentorship Program, we offer resources for first generation students in law school to alleviate the unique barriers faced by these students.

HOW DO I JOIN?

If you're a student, your best bet is to check out our School Chapters page to see if your school is already a part of our network. If so, send your chapter president an email and they will be sure to include you in updates on first generation network opportunities. If your school is not a part of our network yet, we would love for you to bring the network to your school. Contact any of our National Chapter members to get the process started.

If you're a lawyer, we are always looking for mentors to help first generation students adjust to life in the legal world. Please visit our Mentorship Program page to learn more about how you can become involved.
