Billed as the UK's answer to Judge Judy is Judge Rinder.
Judge Rinder arbitrates on disputes of the type which would typically be seen in a small claims court. The first series was broadcast in August & September, and a second series has been commissioned.
I didn't catch any of the episodes, but Robert Rinder (a barrister at 2 Hare Court) was interviewed on the most recent episode of Law in Action, where he suggested that the programme has become the guilty pleasure for a number of those in the legal profession.
A useful insight into the workings of the law, or daytime TV fodder?
