Strongest Comprehensive Performance awards presented to Elon Law students

On September 9, Elon Law faculty members presented Strongest Comprehensive Performance awards to law students for the 2009-10 academic school year.

Catherine Dunham, left, associate dean for academic affairs and professor of law, presents Andrea Davis with the Best Overall Performance award for a fall 2009 section of Civil Procedure I.

Strongest Overall Performance awards are given to the student who has the best overall performance in each required class at Elon Law. The assessment criteria for best performance awards include student participation in class, oral, written, and group work in class, and the student's final grade for the course.

“The faculty at the law school present these awards to indicate the importance of student contributions in raising the overall learning experience in the classroom,” said Elon Law professor Eric Fink. “We want to acknowledge those who stand out for their engagement of the subject matter, participation in the classroom, and elevation of the level of inquiry in the course for the benefit of all students.”
