John Marshall Law School Fraternity Honored, Named 3rd Best in Country

CHICAGO, Jan. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The chapter of Phi Alpha Delta (PAD) Law Fraternity at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago recently was named among the top law school fraternities in the nation.

John Marshall's chapter was ranked third in the country by its peers at other law schools at PAD's national conference. Phi Alpha Delta is a fraternity that encourages professional integrity and service to the community through interaction between law students and members of the bar and bench.

"I am very proud of how hard the Executive Board worked last year," said John Marshall PAD President Joseph Stacho. "Without their dedication and commitment, we would not have had such a successful year."

James Nowak, the treasurer of John Marshall's Lincoln PAD chapter, was awarded the David A. Benamy Grant Award for young law school alumni. He was one of just 20 in the country to receive the award. Nowak also received second place for the Dalphine MacMillan Outstanding Treasurer Award, honoring the country's best fraternity treasurer.

PAD is one of more than 50 student organizations available to law students at The John Marshall Law School.
