Law Student Organization Awards Founder of Regent and Fellow Brother with Lifetime Achievement Award

On behalf of the George Washington chapter of Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity (P.A.D.), Patrick Murphrey presented Dr. M. G. “Pat” Robertson with a lifetime achievement award at the organization’s first induction ceremony of the year.

Not only did the fraternity honor a man who has achieved much, it also honored a brother. Dr. Robertson became a member of P.A.D. while working on his juris doctor at Yale University, and since then has achieved national and international recognition for his scholarly, business, and broadcasting achievements. He is the founder of Regent University, the Christian Broadcasting Network, Operation Blessing, American Center for Law and Justice, and several other organizations and broadcast entities.

"The Washington Chapter wanted to honor Dr. Robertson because without him there would not have been a law school in which to have a chapter of Phi Alpha Delta. We are very thankful for his contribution to the legal profession and Regent University,” said Murphrey.

Murphrey founded Regent’s chapter of P.A.D. last year and served as Justice of the growing organization that strives to serve the students and the community academically and fraternally. He added, “[Dr. Robertson] has been an inspiration and Christ-like mentor to all members of our chapter.”
