Karl Mulvaney Elected President Emeritus of The International Legal Honor Society of Phi Delta Phi
Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP is pleased to announce partner Karl Mulvaney has been elected President Emeritus of The International Legal Honor Society of Phi Delta Phi. His election to this position denotes his perpetual status and significant contributions that have moved the Society to new heights, as well as recognizes his exemplary service to the legal profession.
Karl joined the Society in 1974, and served as Phi Delta Phi’s 44th International President from 1993-1995. He is a 1977 cum laude graduate of the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. Karl practices in the areas of appellate, litigation and disciplinary law.
Phi Delta Phi is the oldest legal organization in continuous existence in the United States, predating even the American Bar Association. It was founded in 1869 at the University of Michigan School of Law by four law students who endeavored to create an association that would foster scholarship, civility, and ethical conduct in the legal profession. Since that time, Phi Delta Phi has grown beyond the borders of the United States to Canada, Latin America and Europe.
More judges, U.S. presidents, governors, senators, representatives, cabinet members, ambassadors, American Bar Association presidents, Association of American Law School presidents and law school Deans are members of Phi Delta Phi than any other legal society. The Society currently has one hundred and thirty-one active chapters and has initiated over 200,000 members. Academic achievement alone is not sufficient to give rise to an invitation to join Phi Delta Phi. Integrity, service, and excellence in all facets of human experience are considered factors for membership.
Please join the firm in congratulating Karl on this esteemed appointment.
