Phi Alpha Delta is the largest pre-law fraternity in the country. One in every five attorneys in the United States is a member of Phi Alpha Delta and more than 4,000 new members are initiated every year. With a total of more than 450,000 members who share a common interest in the law you could quickly become part of a vast alumni network (including current and former supreme court justices and former presidents).
Of course, students get out of the experience what they put into it, whether it is a glimpse of courtroom life through Phi Alpha Delta's prestigious mock trial program or serving in the leadership of the local chapter. When reviewing your resume, law school admissions panels and future employers will consider these and similar activities to be important in measuring your interest in a career in law.
