Joshua Rozenberg KC (hon) is Britain's most experienced full-time legal commentator.

He is the only journalist to have been appointed as Queen's Counsel honoris causa. All other honorary silks since the late 19th century have been practitioners or legal academics.

He is an honorary Master of the Bench (bencher) of Gray's Inn and a non-executive board member of the Law Commission.

His most recent book is Enemies of the People? How Judges Shape Society. Published in April 2020, it has been well received by critics are readers alike.

After taking a law degree at Oxford he trained as a solicitor, qualifying in 1976, and holds honorary doctorates in law from the University of Hertfordshire (1999), Nottingham Trent University (2012), the University of Lincoln (2014) and the University of Law (2014).

Since 2008, he has written a twice-monthly column for the Law Society Gazette. From 2010 to 2016, he wrote a weekly commentary for the Guardian website and from 2019 to 2022 he wrote a monthly column for The Critic magazine.

In 2020, he launched a new blog:

Joshua was the BBC's legal correspondent for 15 years before moving in 2000 to The Daily Telegraph. He resigned as the newspaper's legal editor in the summer of 2007 but continued writing a weekly column until the end of 2008.

A decade after he left the BBC, Joshua returned in 2010 to present the popular Radio 4 series Law in Action, a programme he had launched in 1984.

In 2012, he was included by The Times in its independently-judged list of the UK's 100 most influential lawyers, the only journalist to feature.

Joshua is known for his independence, his authority and his ability to explain complicated legal issues with simplicity, clarity and wit. Because he trained as a lawyer before becoming a legal journalist, he is often the first port of call for broadcasters faced with a breaking legal story.

He appears regularly on Sky News, on the BBC's various news outlets and on other news networks in the UK and abroad. 

Well respected by lawyers and the judiciary, Joshua is often asked to chair or address legal conferences and other corporate events — either in person or remotely.

He was accredited as a mediator by the ADR group, though he has never practised.

Joshua has a particular interest in constitutional reform, dating back to his time as producer of The Week in Westminster on Radio 4 in the early 1980s. Freedom of expression is another of his interests, and he wrote the well-reviewed book Privacy and the Press for Oxford University Press (2004, updated 2005; Chinese edition 2012).

Earlier books include Trial of Strength, which examined the tensions between ministers and judges under the Thatcher government, The Search for Justice, an anatomy of the law in the mid-1990s and The Case for the Crown, which charted the launch of the Crown Prosecution Service.
