James is one of the rare leaders of people who not just inspires you, but sees through each of his students to their success. As a student James ensured that I found my true north, but also provided invaluable mentoring, coaching and counseling on the path there. I started with him as an EOF student at Rutgers, and went on to graduate from Rutgers, Harvard Law School and the Harvard Kennedy School. James is one of a kind! ”
