New Life Breathed into Rand Inn
Thursday, March 4, 2010
The University of Western Ontario has had a chapter since 1978, called Rand Inn after the founding dean of the law school. But Rand Inn has been defunct in recent years due to lack of participation.
In celebration of UWO Law’s 50th anniversary this year, Phi Delta Phi decided to reinvigorate its local chapter by hosting a membership drive. On March 3, 2010, Rand Inn initiated 7 new members at UWO. Al Burton, the Province President for Phi Delta Phi and a partner at Thomson Rogers, came from Toronto to administer the ceremony.
"The principles of Phi Delta Phi stand for professionalism and legal ethics, said Omar Ha-Redeye, a third-year law student, and Magister of the Inn. "It’s a perfect match for our school, which is considered a pioneer in this field.”
Over 400 members of Rand Inn are listed in the fraternity’s directory, all graduates of UWO Law since 1978.
