Fostering First Gen Success and Inclusion: A Guide for Law Schools provides law schools with practical and substantive tools to support first-generation law students. A "first-generation law student" refers to law students whose parents did not attend college. While they experience unique challenges, they also bring tremendous skills and values to the institution.

This book illustrates the challenges and characteristics of all first-generation law students by looking at a diverse range of first-generation law student populations. It is designed to assist law schools with creating an inclusive environment for first-generation law students and to foster success in all aspects of their law school journey, from admission to post graduation.
