A drama following a diverse group of lawyers handling high-profile cases in Federal Court.

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.

Great show love how they call out the USA on their pathetic immigration practices

Please don't turn this show into a liberal soapbox. I found the episode on ICE and immigration a one-sided political nightmare. It's fine to tackle the big issues... but show both sides of the argument. Another episode like that one and you will lose me as a viewer.

I enjoyed this show, but after the blatant attack on ice and the government of the United States, including our president, I will no longer watch this show. You talk about Republicans and the President dividing the country. That is ridiculous, you are dividing the country with your nonsense narratives. Please cancel this show!!!!

Lawyer one (Partner with 20 years experience arguing cases: "We have the most important case a federal court has ever heard. It will set precedents for decades. Who should we send to argue it ?"

Lawyer two (Partner with 25 years experience arguing cases: "Lets send the first year law interns"
