Law & Order

Law & Order and SVU are two of the many “real-life” crime series on television today. Both shows have realism, a sense of justice and order, and dedication to their cases. And both deliver “ripped from the headlines” episodes by showing true crimes and how they are handled by the law.

But while they may sound similar, these shows couldn’t be any more different…except, perhaps, in one very important way…

“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (often abbreviated as “L&O: SVU”) takes place in the Major Case Squad of the Special Victims Unit of the New York City Police Department. This unit is purpose-built for handling cases involving elite and high-risk victims. Their work is often seen as the pinnacle of police work and helps change lives.

Introduction to Law & Order

Law & Order is one of the most well-known US police procedural drama shows and one of the longest-running television series in history. It deals with a variety of crimes from murder to assault but is generally investigated by Jack McCoy, Adam Schiff, Bobby Goren, Alexandra Eames, and Connie Rubirosa. The show is divided into “SVU”, “Criminal Intent” and “Special Victims Unit”. This article will go through an introduction to this famous TV show.

Law & Order was a show about law enforcement and lawyers, hence the title. Throughout its 20 seasons, Law & Order made more than 400 episodes that were largely procedurals — but not all of them! The episodes covered various crimes, including murder, cyber crime, drug trafficking, terrorism, and sex crimes.

Law & Order: SVU also features plots with sexual assault as well as other crimes in which the victim is a child. From its premiere on NBC, Law & Order was regarded as a classic police procedural. The series seems to have inspired many similar shows that use the “Law & Order” name. In the world of Law & Order, there are two parallel justice systems: one for criminal court and another for civil court.
