Last semester (Fall 2016), fourteen NCCU School of Law students were invited to join the International Legal Honor Society, Phi Delta Phi (P.D.P). All fourteen successfully completed their induction. This semester (Spring 2017), Phi Delta Phi officers are on the lookout for potential candidates to join the organization. However, securing an invitation is not easy. Initiation for Spring 2017 will be conducted in early march.
P.D.P is the oldest legal organization in continuous existence in the United States. It predates the American Bar Association by almost ten years. It was founded in 1869 by law students.
P.D.P is an organization dedicated to fostering scholarship, civility, and ethical conduct in the legal profession. Since its founding, some 140 years ago, it has grown into an international organization with chapters in Europe, Latin America, and Canada.
Once every semester P.D.P extends invitation to Law Students who have: exhibited professionalism, excelled academically, and distinguished themselves in service to their community. Membership in P.D.P is a mark of honor and distinction.
Academic achievement alone is not sufficient to secure an invitation to join P.D.P. Among the factors taken into consideration include: professionalism, interpersonal skill, and commitment to community service.
The Fall 2016 inductees were: Katashia Cooper; Reko Currie; Cherell Harris; Eugene Boakye; Antwoine Coleman Jr.; Beth Wolfe; Brittany Roberts; Ronnie Clark; Searra Hazel; Lauren McKoy; Sherika Miller; Donna Rinck
