James studied family law at Oxford and was the Deputy Chair of the Centre for Social Justice Working Group on Modern Slavery. He played a key role in petitioning Cadburys to become a fair trade supplier.
James was the Director for the International Justice Mission office in Bangalore, India, where slavery and forced labour victims are rehabilitated.
In 2014 he was co-opted as a specialist advisor to the “Joint Select Committee on the Modern Day Slavery Bill”. He now reports to parliament on the plight of overseas domestic workers.
