James Rosen (October 23, 1909 – November 18, 1972) was a United States federal judge.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Rosen received an LL.B. from Newark Law School (now Rutgers University) in 1930. He was in private practice in Union City, New Jersey from 1931 to 1959. He was a judge of Hudson County, New Jersey from 1959 to 1964, and then on the New Jersey Superior Court from 1964 to 1971.

On July 19, 1971, Rosen was nominated by President Richard Nixon to a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit vacated by William Henry Hastie. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on September 21, 1971, and received his commission on September 22, 1971. Rosen served in that capacity until his death, in 1972, in West New York, New Jersey.
