Regent Video Wins Two Telly Awards

An instructional video produced by Regent University Law School professor Charles Oates and Regent's Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) has added two 2008 Telly Awards to its list of recognitions. The Missing Persons Dilemma video won Tellys for academic use and work produced on a low budget. Previously, the video had been selected as a winner of the 2007 Silver Davey Award.
The Missing Persons Dilemma video case study was designed to enhance the classroom experience among Regent Law students studying legal ethics. The video, a collaborative effort between Oates and the CTL, is a dramatic reenactment based partially on an actual case. The video illustrates the conflict that two defense lawyers face when confronted with a difficult ethical issue. They must choose between protecting their client's confidence or acceding to the public's right to know the status of missing persons. The Telly is one of the most sought-after awards by industry leaders, from large international firms to local production companies and ad agencies. The Telly Awards honor the very best local, regional and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions and work created for the Web. Watch the video and also Professor Oates' Regent showcase presentation on the CTL Awards webpage.
