Percy J. Power Biography:
Named after Percy J. Power, who was born in Farmington, Michigan. He received his A.B. degree in 1920 from the University of Michigan and an L.L.B. from the Detroit College of Law in 1921. He served as Chancellor of Delta Theta Phi Law Fraternity, International, from 1959 - 1961. As a result of his exemplary legal career, community involvement, and dedication to the fraternity, Percy J. Power's legacy has been preserved in the form of the International Senate's memorial award, bearing his name. When Percy J. Power died in March of 1975, the Thomas M. Cooley Law School's Lansing Campus chartered their student senate after this noteworthy attorney.
Delta Theta Phi is the only law fraternity with an authoritatively-recognized Law Review: The Adelphia Law Journal.
The Percy J. Power Senate is Delta Theta Phi's student senate at Thomas M. Cooley Law School and is currently recruiting student members to be a part of one of the largest law fraternities in North America with over 125,000 members and alumni in over 100 senates.
Our senate is involved in many activities throughout the year involving academic, social, and community service events:
We pride ourselves around our members academic success. The success of our members is the success of Delta Theta Phi. During weeks 12-15, we get together and prepare for finals by group discussions, individual work time, and member exclusive study materials.
We have a passion to help others, not only through legal practice, but by organizing community service events with local schools, other Cooley Law School organizations, and local shelters.
We are here to develop professionals. Each member begins as a student and graduates to a professional. Each term, we host events that allow members to meet Supreme Court Justices, District Court Justices, practicing attorneys, and build great connections. Best of all, many of these connections are Delta Theta Phi members who are there to help you succeed.
Most importantly, we are a FAMILY. The law school experience is hard enough, don't do it alone. Your brothers and sisters, of all ages, are here to support you through any challenge ahead.
