This daylong event explored the significance of the Law & Order brand and its extraordinary success during its more than 20-year run. An eclectic mix of actors, media executives, journalists, and academics spoke to Law & Order’s influence on television as a business, impacts on society’s views of the police and justice systems, and international resonance as it has expanded beyond the U.S.

In the evening, Law & Order creator/producer Dick Wolf screened the series’ original pilot program and participated in a Q&A about the series and its spin-offs with television producer Marcy Carsey.

We are grateful to Cliff Gilbert-Lurie, Ziffren Brittenham LLP, Rick Rosen, and WME for their generous support of this event.
