Professor (Professional Practice)


Professor David Rosen is a full academic Professor of Professional Practice at Brunel Law School, specialising in counter fraud and counter corruption in both civil and criminal disciplines.

He lectures at Brunel every given Wednesday in terms 1 and 2.  When he is not lecturing, he runs a very busy law firm at 29 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London specialising in commercial litigation, divorce, and finance as an active solicitor-advocate in all proceedings.

He created, developed, and runs courses open to all students in the disciplines of advocacy, practical legal skills, and fraud examination. 

Over a decade ago, he created and developed Brunel's pro bono surgery, recognising public demand for access to justice through free legal services and free legal advice, and for the students to gain invaluable experience dealing with the public.

Prof. Rosen presents MESAQ - Morals, Ethics, Scruples, and Quandaries: A course open to all students at Brunel, to prepare them for the workplace. In term 1, etiquette in the workplace; how to behave; the do's and the dont's. In term 2, we will focus upon The Solicitors' Regulation Authority Codes of Conduct, standards and expectations.
