Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, International
Welcome to the Florida International University Phi Alpha Delta Website! Phi Alpha Delta’s purpose is to help you make an informed decision about law school. Many students interested in law school are unsure of what step to take next. Pre-law students often have questions and concerns which may go unanswered, but that’s where Phi Alpha Delta steps in. PAD gives you the tools you need to be prepared as you make one of the most important decisions of your life, the decision to attend law school. But how exactly do we do that? First, we have numerous professional development events. These events, which include law school tours, courthouse tours, prominent speakers, law student panels, attorney dinners, etc., allow you to first hand experience the career which awaits you, or simply decide if that’s the path for you. We also hold a variety of workshops, which include how to prepare for the LSAT, how to build a resume, when to begin the application process, and many more. Lastly, one of the most important tools PAD provides, are your brothers. Not only will you build friendships to last a lifetime, but in the process you will be surrounding yourself with people who share similar ambitions. PAD brothers continually provide support for each other sharing their experiences, advice, and tips on the entire law school application process. We encourage anyone interested in attending law school to consider becoming a part of Phi Alpha Delta. It’s a decision you won’t regret, you’ll find out what it truly means to be a PAD!
