Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, International is a professional service organization composed of pre-law students, law students, legal educators, attorneys, judges, and government officials. Phi Alpha Delta was founded in 1902 for the purpose for promoting professional competency and achievement within the legal profession.
Since the beginning, Phi Alpha Delta (PAD) has experienced astounding growth and today is the world's largest law fraternity with over 200 pre-law chapters, over 180 law school chapters and over 90 alumni chapters in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Mexico.
The PAD Pre-Law Program was established in 1980 and during the past 20 years has reached a position of preeminence at colleges and universities across the United States and Puerto Rico. Membership in Phi Alpha Delta launches you into an elite group whose members include past Presidents, Senators, and other important community figures.
PAD was the first organization to recognize
the importance of uniting all members of the legal profession, thereby becoming
the first to remove all restrictions on membership by reason of race, sex,
color, creed, or nation of origin.
PAD is the first and only law fraternity to recognize the needs of pre-law students and develop a program to help them as they pursue a career in the law.
In addition, PAD is the first and only law fraternity to sponsor an Annual International Conference and a Mock Trial Competition specifically addressing the needs of pre-law students.
PAD is the only law fraternity to receive federal funding from the U.S. Department of Justice for its Law Related Education program and the first law fraternity to enter the information superhighway. The PAD Pre-Law Listserve provides a forum for pre-law students to discuss legal topics, programming ideas and chapter events.
The PAD Web Page provides access to a variety of information on the fraternity and its officers, as well as links to other web pages containing valuable information for students.
