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_Blitz Courts & Leeds CCC Listing Practice Note 13 May 2021

Dear Fellow Circuiteer,

Attached to this message is a listing note issued by the Recorder of Leeds today. It concerns a new listing initiative at Leeds that might conveniently be described as ‘blitz’ courts. All of you who work in Leeds regularly should take some time to read it.

These two courts will commence sitting on 14th June and are aimed at tackling the backlog of short bail cases that are awaiting trial. The Courts will be heavily listed and will provide an excellent opportunity to get these cases on for trial much sooner that might otherwise have been the case. As is clear from the note this initiative will not apply to custody cases, or Class 1 or 2 cases.
