Many people (including most lawyers) are first exposed to the New York court system through shows like Law & Order. But unless you are in court on a regular basis, you may not know how close to "reality" the action and story actually are. Some, however,
possess an intimate knowledge of the New York courts, and while huge fans of such programs, specifically instruct their juries to ignore points of law that they may have seen on TV. How and why these differences and inconsistencies exist is the subject of a lively and informative discussion by our panelists who are from both sides of the camera - i.e., the real courtroom and the "fake" one.

Reception and Q&A to follow.
