RALEIGH, NC—Campbell Law School’s new initiative, the “First-Gen Blueprint” virtual program launched this month. It is designed to help remove barriers, close knowledge gaps and inspire future students, who are the first in their immediate family to attend law school.
The online program — the only one of its kind at a U.S. law school — is the brainchild of Cutright and Assistant Admissions Director Josue Jimenez, who are both first-gen law graduates. It’s designed to allow students to participate at their own pace and is expected to take approximately six hours to complete.
Program highlights include:
- Tips on how to succeed on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT)
- How to find other resources available for first-generation law students including mental health services and the N.C. Lawyer Assistance Program
- Where to look for Pro Bono opportunities and financial assistance with the help of AccessLex Institute, a nonprofit company dedicated to providing financial aid education for law students
- The chance to explore the law school experience from the perspective of current first-gen law students, professors, lawyers and judges
