Barrister, broadcaster and author Rob is on a mission to demystify the legal system and make the law more accessible.


Rob Rinder is a barrister turned writer and broadcaster. Alongside a legal practice specialising in financial crime, he works in the media to make the law more accessible and understandable to the public and starred in his own reality court show Judge Rinder. Rob co-hosts Amazing Hotels, Life Beyond The Lobby and is a regular co-host on Good Morning Britain.

After a brief stint at the National Youth Theatre, Rob gave up his acting ambitions to study politics, modern history, and art at university. After being called to the bar he specialised in financial crime, including money laundering, international fraud, and regulatory issues. Whilst practising law he maintained an interest in the media, writing scripts in his spare time. This saw him pitching a TV series which, although rejected, led producers to cast Rob as the judge in a UK version of the American hit Judge Judy.

Rob has also presented shows including Judge Rinder's Crime Stories, a look at some of Britain’s less well-known but nevertheless gripping crimes, and a revamped version of Crown Court, titled Judge Rinder's Crown Court. He also hosted the BBC Radio 5Live series Raising the Bar with the aim of demystifying the legal system, and the talkRADIO drivetime show.

Rob has competed in Strictly Come Dancing, and appeared on Have I Got News for You, Channel 4's Alternative Election Night, Room 101, Loose Women, and Comic Relief Does University Challenge. His participation in BBC One’s Who Do You Think You Are?, in which he retraced the story of his Holocaust survivor grandfather, was critically acclaimed.

Away from the screen Rob has published Rinder Rules, a jargon-free, practical guide to the law, from divorce to consumer rights. He is also a columnist for The Sun and the London Evening Standard.

In his talks Rob discusses the importance of communication, and helps the audience build their skills as an innovative communicator, focusing on the power of persuasion, influence, and presence. He also considers that difficult conversations are hard, but unavoidable, and focuses on key skills and qualities demonstrated in his life as a barrister to coach businesses on how to prepare for them by equipping employees with the right tools.
