On March 26, 12 students from WMU-Cooley Law School’s Tampa Bay campus were initiated into Phi Delta Phi (PDP) International Legal Honor Society. PDP International Legal Honor Society is the oldest legal organization in America, predating the American Bar Association. Law students are invited to become members based on excellent academic standing, professionalism, integrity and service.

WMU-Cooley Law School students initiated into the society include TJ Barklow, Kim Canals, Joe Cline, Sierra Whitaker-Davis, Adi Gibson, Jessica Hopkins, Rob Johnson, Derek Matthews, Lauren Pack, Jennifer Roberts, Eric Watson, and Matt Wisniewski.

PDP International Legal Honor Society was founded in 1869 by four law students who wanted to create an association that would foster scholarship, civility, and ethical conduct in the law profession. Since that time, PDP has grown to exist in Canada, Latin America, and Europe.
