What People Say
“Joining P.A.D. helped prepare me for the rigors of my 1L year. There is a cloud of mystery surrounding law school, and most people go in only knowing that it will be hard. Phi Alpha Delta at Mizzou gave me a better idea than my classmates of what law school is, what would be required of us, and how to succeed. The knowledge I gained through P.A.D. gave me confidence that I would succeed at law school.”
— Kelsey Brandes, Mizzou P.A.D. Pre-Law Alumna
"Phi Alpha Delta offers excellent speakers and valuable advice about law school to students who may have decided to go to law school, or others who need help fine tuning that perfect application. In a leadership role, I was able to give back to P.A.D. and help others prepare for law school. I think that is what really prepared me for law school - knowing that my end goal is to help people.
— Kyle Barrett,
Member & Former President '16-'17
"Phi Alpha Delta offers a plethora of opportunities to students who have an interest in pursuing a legal career. This organziation helps students not only decide if law school is right for them, but gives them a peek inside the life of various professionals that work within the law. P.A.D. gives undergraduate students the tools to succeed during and beyond law school and I couldn't imagine beginning my crucial application process without it."
— Anna Goldman,
Current President '19-'20
