FGP AT CLS!
Columbia Law First Generation Professionals (FGP) is an inclusive community that works to provide support to working class, low income, and first generation college or graduate students at Columbia Law School. The FGP community is a conscientious network organized around principles of economic justice rather than identity. We seek to welcome and empower students from all walks of life who are at CLS chasing their own dreams, and who often represent the hopes and dreams of their families. FGP is open to anyone who wants to cultivate a community based on the common values of class-consciousness and mobility for all, regardless of whether they fit perfectly into any “first generation” category.
