Storyline

Barristers. They are young, educated, soft on the inside, hard where it counts. Don t let the wigs fool you, when you stand alone in court, when your life is on the line, these are the people you want between you and the jury. The North Square chambers are finding their feet, fighting for a large piece of the criminal justice business in Leeds. Working for his barristers or maybe the other way around is their manipulative chief clerk. Ruthless, obsessive, with a razor sharp mind and a cosh-like sensibility, Peter McLeish loves the business and the business loves him. Written by Anonymous

The quality of mercy is not strained....
15 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

Here in Australia our ABC is currently doing a repeat screening of this top notch British legal drama/comedy, and not a moment too soon. 10 episodes is just not enough of North Square and it's completely criminal that more were never made.

North Square may not be a realistic portrayal of legal life (though my own experiences as a law student and one-time article clerk do make me wonder if there is a grain of truth in North Square) but it has witty dialogue and fascinating characters. It's hard to pick a favourite part of North Square but my vote goes to barrister Tom Mitford's method of swaying juries and judges - with quotes from The Merchant Of Venice....it's adaptable to any case, even indecent exposure.

But there are heaps of great moments in this show. Find a copy, watch it, and let it endear you to the legal world of Leeds.
