About Law in Action

High Court, London

The current series of Law in Action is on air from Tuesday 8th June 2010 to Tuesday 29th June 2010.

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.

When appropriate, we question the lawmakers too as well as those arguing for changes in the law.

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

The current series of Law in Action is on air from Tuesday 8th June 2010 to Tuesday 29th June 2010. In order to allow for Budget coverage, the third programme of the series will be broadcast in our Thursday evening repeat slot on 24th June only.

Law in Action is the longest-running legal magazine radio programme on the BBC.

The current production team includes producer Simon Coates, producer Wesley Stephenson and researcher Lucy Proctor. The editor is Innes Bowen.
