The Southwestern chapter of Delta Theta Phi was named in honor of Justice Marshall F. McComb, a member of the California State Supreme Court from 1956-1977. Many of Justice McComb's personal papers were bequeathed to Southwestern and are on display in the McComb Room in the Bullocks Wilshire Building.
Members of the McComb Senate have traditionally been among the student leadership at Southwestern. Members of the Senate include active participants in all honors programs, the Student Bar Association and Student Bar Association organizations.
The Southwestern McComb Senate is comprised of the best students at Southwestern. In recent years, the Senate has received regional honors from the international organization, including Most Outstanding Nation in the Nation, Most Outstanding Student in the Nation and Outstanding Regional Professor. The Southwestern chapter has also published the Adelphia Law Journal, the only such journal published by a law fraternity.
