Delta Theta Phi is a professional law fraternity and a member of the Professional Fraternity Association. The smallest of the three internationally recognized law fraternities (the other two being Phi Alpha Delta, the largest, and Phi Delta Phi), Delta Theta Phi is the only one of the three major law fraternities to charter chapters (senates) in the United States at non-American Bar Association approved law schools. Delta Theta Phi can trace its roots to 1900 at the then-named Cleveland Law School. Delta Theta Phi has initiated more than 136,000 members across the country and in several other nations.

After more than 30 years with its headquarters in Ohio, Delta Theta Phi is now headquartered at Campbell University, Norman A. Wiggins School of Law, in North Carolina.

Delta Theta Phi is the only law fraternity with an authoritatively recognized law review, The Adelphia Law Journal. Membership is the only requirement to submit a note for consideration for publication.

The governing body for the Fraternity, called the Supreme Senate, has overseen the operation of the Fraternity since 1913. The Supreme Senate was originally composed of seven elected officers until a student was added to the board to assure a more complete student representation. In the 1970s, a second student position was added.
