Phi Alpha Delta began as a "law student league" formed to fight an 1897 ruling made by the Supreme Court of Illinois, which affected law students' admission to the bar association. Following the resolution of this controversy, the league wanted to create a formal association and founded the Lambda Epsilon Fraternity in 1898. In 1902, the fraternity was reorganized and renamed Phi Alpha Delta in order to extend the benefits of the organization to a wider range of the legal profession. More information about the fraternity is available on their website here: http://www.padcommunity.org/about-phi-alpha-delta
