First Generation Law Students

First Generation Law Students (FGLS) is a newly chartered organization at the Loyola University Chicago School of Law which exists to create an academic and social support network to help students succeed in law school. The organization aims at providing programming around academic, professional, and personal support to students who are the first in their family to attend law school. Starting law school, as exciting as it may be, can bring out feelings of anxiety and imposter syndrome. As an organization, we believe it is imperative that our members know they are not alone, and that there is a community of individuals eager to support them through this journey.
