Delta Theta Phi was created in September of 1913, when the legal fraternities Delta Phi Delta, Alpha Kappa Phi, and Theta Lambda Phi amalgamated. All of the great law fraternities, which today comprise Delta Theta Phi, were founded by students. These students were interested in the future of the legal profession and their own futures as practitioners of that profession. They sought to create an organization that would contribute to their interests as well as to the law schools with which they are associated.
Delta Theta Phi has senates across the United States, Puerto Rico, Australia, Canada, and Iceland. Is it the only law fraternity in the world with its own authoritatively recognized law review; The Adelphia Law Journal. Today, the Fraternity enjoys the goodwill of all who are familiar with its activities and traditions and it is universally recognized as the leading professional fraternity in the world.
