Prestigious Law Fraternity to Install a Chapter at Regent


Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, International (PAD), the world’s largest legal fraternity, now has a chapter at Regent. A strong alliance of foreign and domestic leaders of the law, PAD exists in part to stimulate academic excellence, inspire compassion and courage, and to foster integrity and professional competence.

Chartered this January as the George Washington Chapter primarily through the efforts of law students Patrick Murphrey (’10) and Nathan McGrath (’10), the chapter creates a new opportunity for law students, alumni, and faculty to network with members of the legal community at large. There are over 200,000 members in 55 countries; among them are six past presidents, six past and current Supreme Court justices, and many members of the U.S. Senate and Congress. PAD also offers service and learning opportunities to encourage participation in moral, intellectual, and community advancement.

Murphrey and McGrath see the chapter as a step toward living up to Regent’s motto of “Christian Leadership to Change the World.” Both active members of their undergrad pre-law chapters, the founding officers are working hard to establish an organization that, according to Murphrey, is “unique among the current law school organizations, blending the positive qualities (academic, social, service, professional, and spiritual) of all of them into one organization.”
Appropriately, the chapter will be installed on George Washington’s birthday, February 22, 2008. PAD is open to all students and alumni for a moderate membership fee, and is free for all law faculty. Please go too http://www.pad.org/ for membership information.
