For over 25 years, TransMedia and its predecessor have been providing superior educational products. Officially incorporated in 1987, TransMedia Productions, Inc., (more commonly known as TransMedia) is a Louisiana corporation; its initial principle place of business was located in Farmington Hills Michigan, where it remained until the late 1990’s. Currently TransMedia’s CEO resides in Beverly Hills, California and Shreveport, Louisiana.
The company’s authors have written several books for publishers that include: Prentice-Hall, Times Mirror, Matthew Bender, James Publishing Company, Lexis/Nexis, and Carolina Academic Press.
In 1992, the California Bar Association became the first state to certify TransMedia’s computer game Objection! for California’s new mandatory continuing legal education program. Before then, no videogame had ever qualified for such credit in any state.
The Objection! series of computer games is currently recognized throughout the country as an outstanding lawyer training device. It is approved for continuing legal education in nearly all states permitting home study, such as Florida; some states such as California also grant participatory credit. The simulations are unique. They provide courtroom settings; witnesses are asked questions as in a real trial. The player must instantly determine their propriety. If improper, players must select the appropriate objection. Examinations include direct and cross-examination, plaintiffs and defendants, experts and laypersons.
