Law students receive book awards
during final afternoon tea of fall semester
The books were donated by legal publishers Aspen, Lexus Nexus and West Group and include a bookplate with the students' name and the name of the award.
Law schools traditionally give book awards for the highest grade on the end of semester exam in a course. Scoring highest on the semester exam is known in law school circles as "booking" a course, because of the tradition of presenting books to the highest scorers.
Elon Law faculty took comprehensive class performance into account for these awards, isntead of making awards based on one grade.
The strongest comprehensive performance award winners by subject area for spring 2007 are listed below:

One Thursday each month, the law school hosts afternoon tea and invites local attorneys, judges, preceptors and friends of the school to visit with students and faculty in a relaxed atmosphere. Superior Court Judge Stuart Albright visited as Judge of the Month, and Judge Donna Stroud and Judge John Tyson from the N.C. Court of Appeals, who spoke to the Federalist Society and Elon Law Republicans earlier Thursday, also participated.
