About Law In Action

Law in Action's aim is to lead the field in lively, jargon-free but rigorous analysis of the legal stories in, behind, and ahead of the news. The series has been running since 1984.

It is presented by Joshua Rozenberg. Having spent 15 years as the BBC Legal Affairs Correspondent and further 8 years editing the Daily Telegraph's legal coverage, Joshua is one of the UK's most well known legal commentators.

The programme regularly talks to leading legal figures at home and abroad but also hears from the people caught up in the law about how it affects their lives.

We don't report trials for their own sake, but will explore legal issues raised by cases in the news.

Law in Action is broadcast 12 times a year on Tuesdays at 4pm, and is repeated on Thursdays at 8pm.
