Law Fraternity Gives Back to Heartland Humane Society
Delta Theta Phi is national law fraternity aimed to unite law students, lead them to high scholarship and legal learning, and instill in its members the highest standard of personal integrity, diligence, candor and trust. To that goal, members of USD’s Delta Theta Phi chapter are encouraged to partake in charitable or pro bono hours.
Last month, members of the Harlan-McKusick Senate, as well as non-members from the law school, volunteered their time at the Heartland Humane Society. Earlier in the semester, the chapter also hosted a fundraiser event that raised $700 to use toward a charity of the members’ choice. The funds were donated to the Heartland Humane Society.
“Every year, Delta Theta Phi has given me the opportunity to grow in friendship, legal studies and leadership,” said law student Sara Mangan, who has been a member of the chapter since her first year in law school. “As the current dean of the Harlan-McKusick Senate, I have been able to connect with attorneys across the country, strive for new opportunities for the members of our senate and watch other executive board members flourish in their leadership roles.”
