The First-Generation Law Student Association was created in 2020 to provide support for first generation law students, bridge connections across Chicago-Kent cultural and affinity groups, and foster diversity in the legal field.

First-Gen aims to provide networking and educational opportunities for our members, many of whom are not only first generation law students but also first generation college graduates and Americans.
