"The University of Houston Law Center has pre-law, J.D., LL.M. and part-time programs plus numerous centers and institutes that provide our team with many opportunities to create distinctive marketing and promotional materials," said Carrie Anna Criado, assistant dean of Communications and Marketing. "Being acknowledged for Briefcase radio is a first for us and I am delighted that this weekly series, which is a new initiative of Dean Leonard M. Baynes, has been well received by not only the Collegiate Advertising Awards, but also the greater Houston community."

"It's nice to be recognized by our peers for all the great work our talented team does to showcase the Law Center and its educational opportunities," said Elena Hawthorne, assistant director of the Communications and Marketing Department.

Entries for the 2017 Collegiate Advertising Awards program were judged by a panel of design and education marketing professionals and competed against similarly sized colleges, universities, and other educational organizations. Promotional material in a wide range of categories was judged on creativity, layout/design, typography, production, quality and overall effectiveness.
