Our country has a rich tradition of incorporating the criminal law into fictional stories that reflect and challenge our values. But with the rise of reality television, the lines between fact, fiction, and entertainment are thinner than ever. As Hollywood writers produce legal dramas, media professionals spin legal news stories, and reality TV crews capture law breaking in progress, is their work affecting public perceptions of the justice system? Does their work affect the justice system itself?
The symposium, convened by the NYLS Program in Law and Journalism, featured a keynote address by Howard Gordon, Executive Producer and writer for Fox's "24," and brought together panelists to share their thoughts on popular culture's portrayal of, and influence on the criminal law.
New York Law School Magazine covered the event in the Fall/Winter 2010 issue. Read the article here.
