Locklear said she was happy to return to TV.
"I've always loved being on TV. I loved being in a series. I love having a regular place to go to all the time," she said. "So it's never been surprising that I'd want to be back on a series."
Her character spars with Franklin & Bash and even forces them to each have their own office.
"They're kind of bratty, so you have to separate them," Locklear said. "I think she wants to wield her power over them and show them what she can do and that she means business."
As for the legal aspect, Locklear is still learning the ropes and doesn't think she'd make it far in a real courtroom.
"I could probably fake it for the beginning, the opening - I can open," she said. "And then when somebody's saying something that I don't understand on the other side, the defense side or something, I'd cave real quick. It's really hard. Some of the legalize is hard. Like trying to figure out what it all is and what it all means before I say it."
