At the BBC he worked across all media formats, providing legal commentary on major cases and where legal affairs affected a headline story.

Now a freelance journalist, he writes regular columns for the Law Society Gazette, Law Business Review and Standpoint magazine. In May 2010 he started writing a weekly blog for The Guardian's online law page. On 8 June 2010, he returned to the BBC to present Law in Action, 25 years after starting the radio programme.[4][5]

Rozenberg 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). Rozenberg is also an honorary bencher of Gray's Inn, and is accredited as a mediator by the ADR group. He has won the Bar Council's Legal Reporting Award four times.
