Phi Alpha Delta

Coastal Carolina University Chapter

The fundamental objective of Phi Alpha Delta's Pre-Law Program is to assist undergraduate students to make an "informed choice" in selecting law as a career, deciding which law school to attend, and in preparing for the rigors of law school. Phi Alpha Delta remains the only Law Fraternity and the only national legal organization of any kind with a national Pre-Law Program committed to meeting the needs of undergraduate students interested in the law.

Phi Alpha Delta is a co-ed fraternity, and accepts new members each year. In order to become a member of Phi Alpha Delta, you must pay a first time membership fee and complete the necessary paperwork. Regular meetings are open to anyone, even if you are not a member of Phi Alpha Delta. Feel free to stop by any meeting to find out more about Phi Alpha Delta. If you have any other questions or concerns about joining, please contact the faculty adviser, Professor Frederick Wood at fwood@coastal.edu.
