Judge Rinder is a British arbitration-based reality court show that has been on air on ITV since 11 August 2014. The show depicts Robert Rinder as a fictional arbitrator overseeing civil cases. Rob Rinder began his career in criminal law in 2003. He is a barrister and wears his barrister robes while on the show but does not wear the wig as is customary in the judiciary. Rinder is a practising criminal barrister at 2 Hare Court Chambers in London and this is made clear on the show. Any awards handed down by Rinder are paid by the production company rather than the loser.
Judge Rinder is a highly successful series.
