BLAKE LAW CENTER & Online
Each 2nd & 4th Monday
12pm – 12:50pm
This FREE and CONFIDENTIAL group is exclusively for first generation students at Western New England University School of Law.
Please join peers for a new support group exclusively for law students at Western New England University School of Law who are the first generation in their families to attend law school. This group is designed to help you navigate the law school experience and to discuss various topics with others in a similar situation. Topics may include defining the first-generation experience, imposter syndrome, coping skills for stress, study skills to maximize performance, and other relevant topics around the pandemic.
- This is a support and discussion group, and not a therapy group.
- The intention of this support group is to build community and peer support.
- It is completely confidential and attendance will not impact any potential character and fitness standards for the Bar or other future employment.
- Participation will require both video and audio. If doing it from a smartphone, the phone needs to be positioned in a stable way.
- It is not a group for talking about specific coursework or assignments. It is for discussing thoughts, feelings, coping, adapting.
