Helplines for members of the NE bar:

Welcome to the North Eastern Circuit.  There are almost a thousand Members of Circuit and you will be able to find a specialist barrister of the highest quality whatever your legal problem.  Local knowledge is a huge advantage in the majority of cases that come before the Courts. 

Whether you are involved in a planning dispute, contractual dispute, a disagreement over children, or have been charged with a criminal offence, there will be a Barrister on Circuit who can advise and represent you.  It’s entirely up to you as to whether a Barrister represents you.

To find your Barrister please decide which City you need them to be in and then go to each Chambers’ website via the links on this site.  We cover all areas from Newcastle down to Sheffield and from Hull to Bradford.  For appropriate cases we can also travel to any Court in England or Wales.

LEADER - Bulletin 19th Feb 2021

Dear Fellow Circuiteer,

I am sorry to have to begin this message by pausing to remember His Honour Simon Hawkesworth QC who passed away this week. He was a lifelong member of the North Eastern Circuit and a former Circuit Officer who is fondly remembered across the entire Circuit. Our thoughts are with his family and friends and the Circuit Office will keep you updated about any arrangements for a Eulogy in due course.
