"The Williams chapter has been in the process of rebuilding its reputation on campus for the past year and a half. All of our members have put hours and hours of work into bringing amazing events to UO Law students," said Kristyn Houston, director of UO's Phi Alpha Delta Williams chapter. "Getting regional recognition of our hard work means the world to our chapter. Collectively, we are all grateful for the honor to represent the University of Oregon School of Law and are proud to bring home the award of Most Outstanding Chapter for Phi Alpha Delta International's District I."
Phi Alpha Delta is the largest professional law fraternity in the world.
