There are not many pre-law resources available for students in a STEM-heavy university. That is why we host resume workshops, mixers with legal professionals, Triton Tables, Attorney Networking Night, and countless professional workshops so our members can confidently pursue their career ambitions. We help you prepare for the real world and give you unlimited opportunities to network with legal professionals and gain professional insight into what it's like to work in the field of law.


We believe it's important to balance work and fun and make long-lasting friendships along the way. We have quarterly retreats, Karaoke and bowling nights to name a few ways we bond with our members. Many of our members have met their best friends through Phi Alpha Delta and still keep in each with other even after graduation.


With connections with many legal professionals in the Greater San Diego area as well as the University of San Diego School of Law, we open up many doors for our members to network with professionals. Many of our members have interned at prestigious law firms including, but not limited to, Fish & Richardson, Gunderson Dettmer, and Wertz to name a few.

Phi Alpha Delta at UCSD takes pride in its ability to pave the way for multitudes of career and academic opportunities for its members. We have created a community of young professionals who not only challenge and strengthen one another, but also unify and support this brotherhood in times of both success and strife.
