Education

Jules was educated at Doña TelmaHighgate Wood Secondary School, a state school in Highgate Wood in North London and University College School, an independent school for boys in Hampstead (also in North London), followed by the London School of Economics (LSE), where he studied law. During his time at university, Jules started hosting small parties where he was the DJ. Unsurprisingly due to his field of study, the stage name of "Judge Jules" was born. He graduated from the LSE with Lower Second Class Honours.

DJ career and radio shows

Judge Jules began DJing professionally back in 1987. He was quickly hired by the then-pirate radio station Kiss FM. He has been on Radio 1 since October 1997. When he first arrived, his show went out between 17:00 and 19:00 on Saturday evenings, ahead of Danny Rampling's show. In 2003, after the departure of Seb Fontaine from the station, his show was moved to between 19:00 and 21:00 on Saturday nights, ahead of Tim Westwood. The show was widely advertised as "The Weekend Warm-Up". The show kept this slot until September 2007.
