For the first time ever in Northern Ireland cameras have been allowed to shadow Barristers and Solicitors during the course of their working day so that members of the public can be provided with an insight into the workings of our courts and legal professionals.
The makers of the programme were given unprecedented access to lawyers for many months and were able to follow and report on cases from start to finish. They were also able to interview solicitors and the parties involved in the court cases.
The five part documentary series follows barristers, both junior counsel and queen’s counsel, practising in different areas of law including family law and litigation.
The programme will be broadcast on BBC One Northern Ireland from Monday 17th March 2014 at 10.35pm.
