A book (also known as book award) is an award given by many law schools in the United States to the student in each class who achieves the highest grade in that class. Referring to the recipient of a book award, a law school student might say, for example, "X booked Torts." Some law schools have named their awards after distinguished alumnus; the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, awards the American Jurisprudence Award to the highest-scoring student in each class, and the Prosser Prize, named after William Prosser, to the second-highest-scoring. Some schools have allowed donors to sponsor book awards as a method of fundraising.[1]
