An Inspiration to All - February 2011


Whenever I encounter passionate and enthusiastic leaders, I am always curious to learn more about them and the organizations they lead. Anyone who has met Dean Jim Rosenblatt of the Mississippi College School of Law (MC Law) quickly recognizes that he is one of those kinds of leaders. His boundless energy and excitement about the institution is inspirational. I am an alumnus of MC Law; however, I graduated a number of years before Rosenblatt became Dean in 2003. I am admirer of Dean Rosenblatt's leadership skills, and I was excited to take time recently to learn more about his leadership philosophy and principles.

A native Mississippian, Rosenblatt grew up on a farm in Wilkinson County. He went on to graduate from Vanderbilt University and completed his legal studies at Cornell. Following his ROTC commissioning, he entered Army service with The Judge Advocate General's Corps (JAG) after his admission to the New York Bar. Rosenblatt received advanced training in the JAG and taught government contracts, fiscal law, and communications at The Judge Advocate General's School. During his military career, he had leadership assignments at the Pentagon and at military posts in Hawaii, Germany, Missouri, Maryland, and Virginia. In 2003, he retired as a Colonel after over 30 years of notable service. He also holds the Distinguished Service Medal and three awards of the Legion of Merit.
