First Generation Law Students Association
About First Generation Law Students Association
Current President(s): Jonathan Rekstad - [email protected]
First Generation Law Students Association (FGLSA) was founded in 2018. FGLSA aims to create a community that will serve as a network for Seton Hall Law students who are the first in their immediate families to enter the legal field. Many first-generation law students encounter unique obstacles as they begin law school, and most attend law school with minimal guidance. Accordingly, FGLSA seeks to be a community of support and a home for such students along their journey to becoming first generation attorneys. FGLSA implements educational and innovative events which tackle the various challenges faced by first-generation law students. FGLSA seeks to expand while providing its members a diverse and engaged experience during their time in law school and beyond regardless of their appearance, beliefs, or economic status. Membership is open to all students.
