Roderick assists our planners with legal review, prepares appeals and acts as counsel. Roderick has a deep and deep understanding of planning law and his world-class legal brain has helped ensure the robustness and success of our approach to appeals. Some judges did not receive legal training in academia, but were either trained by teaching or self-taught, as was common practice among many lawyers before the mid-20th century. These judges received training equivalent to what would be an undergraduate today, but received no legal training at the graduate level, the model under which law schools in the United States are currently organized. We tailor our support and services to our clients` needs, from allocating additional resources to internal planning teams to providing a fully outsourced set of planning applications. We can provide expert planning and legal advice, and our team can act as planning witnesses, lawyers and lawyers. With considerable expertise in local government, the tertiary sector and corporate, our team can deliver quick and cost-effective results.
Our understanding of planning application, coupled with our extensive legal capabilities, means that local authorities can count on us to solve even the most complex planning application cases. We have a high success rate on appeal and are able to manage cases from start to finish, freeing up formal time for other issues. Associate Justice James F. Byrnes, whose brief term lasted from June 1941 to October 1942, was the last judge without a law degree to be appointed; Stanley Forman Reed, who served on the Court from 1938 to 1957, was the last sitting judge from such a background. In total, of the 114 judges appointed to the Court, 49 had a law degree, 18 attended law school but did not graduate, and 47 received their legal training without attending law school.  Before the advent of modern law schools in the United States, judges, like most lawyers of the time, supplemented their law studies by “reading the law” (studying with more experienced lawyers and acting as apprentices) rather than participating in a formal program. The first judge appointed to attend a full-fledged law school was Levi Woodbury, who was appointed to the Court in 1846. Woodbury had attended Tapping Reeve Law School in Litchfield, Connecticut, then the most prestigious law school in the United States, before being admitted to the bar in 1812.
Woodbury, however, did not earn a law degree. Woodbury`s successor on the Court, Benjamin Robbins Curtis, who received his law degree from Harvard Law School in 1832 and was appointed to the Court in 1851, was the first judge to bear such a title.

The U.S. Constitution does not require federal judges to have a particular training or career, but the Court`s work encompasses complex legal issues — from constitutional law to administrative law to admiralty law — and, as a result, legal education has become a de facto requirement for appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. Each person appointed to the court was a lawyer.
