2013-09-19 Law & Order Flyer-page-001

Come join us as we watch Detectives Benson and Stabler face off against a demented psychopath. With many twists and turns around every corner, you never what will happen next. Will justice prevail or will the murderer get away?
Following the show, we are honored to have two Baruch College Faculty members join us for an informal discussion about Hollywood’s “perspective” on New York’s legal system.
Just how closely does the show following New York law? Would there be a different outcome in the real world?
