PRACTICE, THE

SERIES DESCRIPTION

David E. Kelley’s Emmy® Award-winning legal drama, THE PRACTICE, returns for its eighth season, promising more provocative, issue-related stories coupled with the writer’s trademark humor.

Set in Boston, THE PRACTICE centers on a firm of passionate attorneys to whom every case is important and every client worth a fight to the end. Legal maneuvering is the firm’s modus operandi and they have it down to a science, making even the most questionable arguments seem convincing. While they can’t — and don’t — win every trial, the pursuit of justice remains the priority until the final verdict is announced... and sometimes afterwards. Pursuing justice, however, often forces them to confront serious ethical and moral issues of conscience.
