After the brilliant but beleaguered Josephine Newton finds her office set alight, seemingly by a disgruntled client, she agrees to return to the Bar, only to discover that she must defend an associate accused of murder – and she has just joined the victim's chambers.
Josephine and Lewis inherit a murder trial where all the evidence points to their client having clobbered the victim with a dumbbell, while Johnny and Skye are reluctantly thrown together to help defend Skye's father from an assault charge involving a decimated rose bush.
Josephine worries she's crossed over to the dark side when representing a furniture conglomerate, but manages to assist the underdog downstairs in a case that is more about athletic competition than racism.
Josephine discovers that her pyromaniac ex-client didn't burn down her solicitor's office, while Lewis' defence of a sneaker thief – the son of a wealthy and absent friend – unearths a troubling drug link between the boy and her sister, Rose.
Meet Josephine Newton (Claudia Karvan, Puberty Blues). Smart, sassy and unapologetically obligated to do the right thing, she's convinced by a seductive former colleague to make a return to her briefly glorious stint at the Bar after her small solicitor's practice goes up in smoke at the hands of a disgruntled client.
