"Goodwill is the monarch of this house..."

Brother Kevin Harden, Jr., Spring 2008 initiate of the Omicron Delta Lambda chapter, was inducted president of the Barristers’ Association of Philadelphia on September 7, 2016. Brother Harden is a trial lawyer and former prosecutor.   

 

“The Barristers’ Association of Philadelphia plays an inimitable role as an advocate for African-American attorneys and the communities from which they come,” said Harden. “It is the highest privilege to lead a group of lawyers so dedicated to community service and shouldering the disproportionate burdens faced by Blacks in the American legal system. I am honored beyond words and will work tirelessly to maintain the Barristers’ reputation as leaders on issues of social justice and economic opportunity in the African-American and Philadelphia communities.” 

 

Brother Harden also volunteers his time as a reading mentor with the Philadelphia Reads program and as a self-defense instructor for domestic violence victims and teenage girls in his role as a co-captain of the Philadelphia National Karate Team. Recently, he was profiled by Billy Penn as one of the next leaders of the Philadelphia legal community and as a “Lawyer on the Fast Track” by The Legal Intelligencer.
