Joshua Rozenberg – Britain’s best-known commentator on the law. Broadcaster, Journalist, Author and Keynote Speaker
Joshua Rozenberg was the BBC’s Legal Correspondent for 15 years before moving in 2000 to The Daily Telegraph, where he continues to write a weekly column as the newspaper’s Legal Editor.
Joshua also has a regular weekly column in The Evening Standard on business law and a fortnightly column for The Law Society Gazette.
Joshua Rozenberg is known for his independence, his authority and his ability to explain complicated legal issues with simplicity and clarity. He is often the first port of call for broadcasters faced with a breaking legal story.
Well respected by lawyers and the judiciary, he is frequently asked to chair or address legal conferences and other events.
He has a particular interest in constitutional reform, dating back to his time as producer of ‘The Week in Westminster’ on BBC Radio 4. Freedom of expression is another of his interests, his most recent book being ‘Privacy and the Press’. Earlier books include ‘Trial of Strength’, which examined the tensions between ministers and judges under the last Conservative government; ‘The Search for Justice’, an anatomy of the law in the mid-1990’s and ‘The Case for the Crown’, which charted the launch of the Crown Prosecution Service.
After taking a law degree at Oxford Joshua trained as a solicitor, qualifying in 1976. He holds an honorary doctorate in law from the University of Hertfordshire and is an Honorary Bencher of Gray’s Inn.
