This legal drama takes place in and around the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Known as The Mother Court, it is home to some of the most high-profile cases in the country.
Here, a group of talented young lawyers working on opposite sides of the law spend their days tackling these high-stakes federal cases. Public defenders face off against prosecutors working for the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney's Office, with both sides going in front of Judge Nicholas Byrne, who rules on these controversial cases.
These young lawyers are put to the test on a daily basis, both personally and professionally, as their lives intersect while working at America's most prestigious trial court.
