List Of Law & Order Characters

The American television police procedural and legal drama Law & Order (1990–2010) follows the cases of a group of police detectives and prosecutors who represent the public interest in the criminal justice system. Known for its revolving cast, the original six actors to star in the program were no longer on the series when it ended in 2010, though Dann Florek has reprised his role as Donald Cragen for the spinoff series, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, since 1999. The longest-serving regular cast members include S. Epatha Merkerson as Lt. Anita Van Buren (1993–2010), Sam Waterston as EADA/DA Jack McCoy (1994–2010), Jerry Orbach as Detective Lennie Briscoe (1992–2004), Steven Hill as D.A. Adam Schiff (1990–2000), and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Ed Green (1999–2008). Actors portraying psychologists on the show include J.K. Simmons as Dr. Emil Skoda (1997–2004, 2010) and Carolyn McCormick as Dr. Elizabeth Olivet (1991–2009). Steven Hill was the last member of the first-season cast to leave the show, though he did not appear in the series' pilot episode. Leslie Hendrix as Medical Examiner Elizabeth Rodgers (1991–2011) is the only character from the second season to have appeared on the show through the end of its 20th and final season, though she was not a regular character.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, list, law, order and/or characters:

    Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.

    You are, or you are not the President of The National University Law School. If you are its President I wish to say to you that I have been passed through the curriculum of study of that school, and am entitled to, and demand my Diploma. If you are not its President then I ask you to take your name from its papers, and not hold out to the world to be what you are not.
    Belva Lockwood (1830–1917)

    You feign guilt in order to justify yourself.
