Sharing Memories of Professor Deborah Rhode

The Stanford Community mourns the loss of Professor Deborah Rhode, the Ernest W. McFarland Professor of Law, who passed away on January 8, 2021.  One of the first women appointed to the faculty and the second woman granted tenure, she joined the law school in 1979.

Deborah was a pioneering scholar and the nation’s most frequently cited scholar on legal ethics and the author of 30 books in the fields of professional responsibility, leadership, and gender, law and public policy. A beloved teacher and mentor to many, Deborah will be missed by her faculty colleagues, current and former students, and generations of lawyers and legal scholars across the globe.
