Synopsis

BabyBarista may have won the battle for tenancy, but the war has just begun.



In his pupilage year, BabyBarista learned the hard way that dirty tricks and a faulty moral compass are essential items in a young lawyer's briefcase. Now, as the newest tenant in chambers, he must face down old enemies, try to win compensation for a group of ASBO-attracting pensioners, and unravel the complicated knots of his love life - not to mention his mother's finances.



Under the wise and watchful eye of OldRuin, BabyBarista tries to keep his nose (and his wig) clean, but when SlipperySlope, an unscrupulous solicitor offers him a quick way out of his financial difficulties he soon becomes embroiled in blackmail, dodgy share-dealing and the dark arts of litigation. With his old adversary, TopFirst out for revenge, and the chance to be awarded a coveted 'red bag' at stake, BabyBarista must use all the tricks of his trade to extricate himself from his legal quagmire, win the case for his mad old clients, and somehow convince his best friend to fall in love with him.



Chronicling the hilarious and sometimes almost unbelievable absurdities of the modern bar, and peopled by a cast of unforgettable characters, Law and Peace is a funny, fast-paced Machiavellian romp through the legal world.
