Meet the Branch

The First Year Students Branch (“FYS”) is designed to help assist 1Ls through their first year of law school. FYS is led by the Vice President of First Year Students and assists with orientation, manages the student to student mentoring program, and provides student advisors for the Inns of Court program. FYS facilitates the 1L Leadership Board and allows for 1Ls to advocate on behalf of their peers. This structure allows FYS to enhance the law school experience for all incoming students.
