I know I’m terribly late on this, but the Carsey Wolf Center at the University of California-Santa Barbara put video clips online of the panels they hosted exploring the impact of the Law & Order brand on society, and its extraordinary success over the years, on Friday, April 15, 2011.
Benjamin participated in the session about the social and cultural significance of Law & Order and the manner in which the series represents crime, punishment, the criminal justice system, and the law. To watch the video clip, go to
Law & Order: Changing Television, Session 2: The Social Significance
Those interested in the other three sessions, too, they are accessible from here
