The Robinson Chapter of Phi Alpha Delta here at the UALR William H. Bowen School of Law strives to follow the mission, core values, and vision of our parent organization. Out charity is The One/The Van which helps serve the homeless community here in Little Rock through clothing, food, shelter, and job search. We not only plan social events, but we also do events related to careers, important law school information like study tips, exam tips, and the grading curve. We try to put on events that are current to what is going on in the legal field today. We are proud of the work that we do and if you would like to know more feel free to ask any member of Phi Alpha Delta.
