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.
Dear Fellow Circuiteer,
This update focuses on one issue only – the resumption of work in Courts across the Circuit.
Over recent weeks I have tried to keep you all updated on plans to re-open buildings and resume in person hearings. As soon as I have been able to tell you about the plans of HMCTS on Circuit I have shared the information with you.
Yesterday, at Bradford Crown, I donned my wig & gown for the first time since 23rd March (the robing room there being open, in a controlled way). It felt good to have my suit of armour back. Lucky cufflinks and everything 👍🏻
Please don’t forget us: the people left in legal limbo by a court system with a backlog of half a million cases. Their stories will be heard this morning on @BBCr4today @SolaceWomensAid @TheCriminalBar @VictimsComm https://t.co/xCmVmE6vlH
