Law & Order - Season 12 (2001 – 2002)

Season 12 of Law & Order saw the introduction of Elisabeth Röhm as ADA Serena Southerlyn as a replacement for ADA Abbie Carmichael (Angie Harmon). In "Attorney Client" (S12E22), future L&O regular Annie Parisse made a guest appearance portraying a stripper. Parisse would eventually replace Elisabeth Röhm in the cast in Season 15.

This would also be the last season for Dianne Wiest as Interim District Attorney Nora Lewin, who left the show before Season 13. Like Adam Schiff before her, Nora Lewin never got a proper farewell either, but since she was only the interim DA, it gave the writers some flexibility. She was eventually replaced as DA by Arthur Branch, portrayed by Fred Dalton Thompson in Season 13.

The 2001-2002 season also saw the premiere of yet another spinoff, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and although there weren't any two-part crossovers, DA Lewin and Detectives Briscoe and Green made guest appearances on that series. Season 12 was also the first season to deal with the September 11th attacks, and the opening voiceover was changed to dedicated the season to the victims (which was changed back for the home video release.) Since the show was well into production when the attacks occurred however, it never was mentioned in any of the storylines until episode 12, which didn't air until January of 2002. The ensuing Global War on Terror and terrorism in general would be a fount of storylines for the rest of the series.
