Phi Delta Phi is a co-ed legal fraternity founded at the University of Michigan in 1869 and is the nation's oldest professional society. With more than 130 chapters and 200,000 total initiated members, Phi Delta Phi remains an elite organization that has produced five U.S. Presidents, fourteen U.S. Supreme Court Justices, and many other influential legal and political minds. One-hundred and forty years after its founding, the Kent Inn of Phi Delta Phi at the University of Michigan Law School continues as a diverse community of law students.
The Kent Inn is unique because it has a house that serves as a residential community for the chapter's twenty-five law student members. Current residents hail from sixteen different states and Holland, and are graduates of many top institutions including Yale University, the University of Chicago, the University of Utrecht, New York University, Haverford College, Duke, and UCLA. A quick sample of our member's academic interests include education law, international law, criminal law, space law, sports law, tax, and commercial litigation. Our members work on the Michigan Law Review, Michigan Journal of International Law, Michigan Journal of Law Reform, Michigan Telecommunications and Technology Law Review, Michigan Journal of Race & Law, and Michigan Journal of Gender and Law.
Each year, the Kent Inn invites eight to ten first-year students to join the fraternity. If you would like to apply, please visit the application page under the navigation menu.
