Is there really a need for this section? Unless I'm mistaken, he's always been played by Waterston, and with the exception of the first four seasons, it's harder to find any episodes in which he does not appear than it is to find episodes in which he does.

- It would be better(and we do this over on MA) to note the episodes he didn't appear in, which in this case would only be the ones before Waterston was on the show. So I'm removing the section.--31dot 21:55, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
- To clarify, since he is a regular character, it is only necessary to note any non-appearances since he's been on the show(which is zero) and any appearances in other shows where he's not a regular. So I've left the other shows but removed L&O.--31dot 21:58, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
What is this ham-fisted attempt at working in the title doing here? As young Jack grew up, he decided that Order needed a counterbalance. In his teenage years, he rebelled, protesting against Vietnam and Nixon's policies, but did not find much satisfaction in being on the losing side. And then, sometime around 1966, Jack discovered Law, and in its firm but gentle embrace he found comfort. That's clumsy writing. --Gorge 22:19, September 24, 2009 (UTC)
Any objection to merging content from Jack's Wikipedia page into this existing article? --Kanamekun 05:45, January 30, 2010 (UTC)
- Yes. As Wikipedia uses a different license that this site, we cannot just copy things over. It's also good to be different, anyway, we don't just want to be a copy of wikipedia.--31dot 12:47, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
I was watching the Season 13 episode "The Ring" where Jack McCoy says there's a slogan at his law school that says "The law should be stable but never stand still." I was looking to find this quote. For the Moot Court at Cornell University, it says "The law must be stable and yet it can not stand still," which is apparently a quote by Roscoe Pound. However, there's also a suggestion that he went to NYU. Does anyone know if it's supposed to be NYU Law or NYU Undergrad? Apparently the Writer's Bible says University of Chicago undergrad and NYU law, but I'm wondering if there's anything more concrete on the show? I'm not trying to demote him from NYU law to Cornell, but it's something worth thinking about.
