Who Will You See There?
Joshua Rozenberg KC (hon) is Britain's most experienced full-time legal commentator.
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.
Lord Pannick KC is a practising barrister at Blackstone Chambers, a Crossbench Peer in the House of Lords and a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. He specialises in constitutional and administrative law and in appellate advocacy.
His most celebrated case was for Gina Miller in 2019, establishing in the Supreme Court that Prime Minister Boris Johnson had acted unlawfully in advising The Queen to prorogue (suspend) Parliament during the Brexit crisis.
David is the Chairman of the British Legal Friends of the Hebrew University.
The Right Honourable The Lord Burnett of Maldon studied law at Pembroke College, Oxford. He was called to the Bar in 1980 and became a pupil and then a member of Temple Garden Chambers, where he practised until May 2008, for the last five years as head of Chambers.
He was appointed Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales on 1 October 2017.
He is President of all the Court of England and Wales, sits in both the Criminal and Civil divisions of the Court of Appeal, in the Divisional Court and also, by invitation, in the Supreme Court.
