To preserve the values and to maintain the best interests of its membership, a majority of the chapter elected to disaffiliate from Phi Alpha Delta and establish the UC Davis Theta Chapter of Kappa Alpha Pi.  Kappa Alpha Pi (abbreviated KAPi, pronounced “Kap-ee”) is the only Co-ed Professional Pre-Law Fraternity at UC Davis. We were officially chartered in the Fall Quarter of 2015 as the Theta chapter of Kappa Alpha Pi. The purpose of this fraternity is to help students make an educated decision about law school and learn more about the legal profession. As members, we strive for both professionalism and fraternalism, keeping in mind our goals and aspirations while also maintaining strong bonds as fraternity brothers and sisters. Kappa Alpha Pi aims to facilitate interaction between brothers, individuals within the law profession, and the community as a whole.

 

Spring Rush 2016!

The rush process always entails events modeling each of our three pillars: Professionalism, Brotherhood and Service. These events provide you with information about who we are, the requirements for law school, and the importance of unity in our chapter.

 

More details will be posted as rush week approaches.

For more information or to join our mailing list, please contact our Rush Chair at rushdaviskapi@gmail.com.
