The Prize, authorized by Ms. Lee, a former law student at the university, is given annually to a book-length work of fiction, published in the preceding year, that best exemplifies the role of lawyers in society.

Michael Connelly will be honored at a ceremony and panel discussion hosted by the Selection Committee on September 20, 2012. The event will take place at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., in conjunction with the National Book Festival, sponsored by the Library of Congress.
