Professor and Dean's Circle Scholar
Professor Rhonda Magee's scholarly work focuses on race law and policy as well as on humanizing legal education and the practice of law. This effort aims to help law students and practitioners cope with pressure in order to be more successful and effective. A national leader in the movement to humanize law and legal education, and an expert in contemplative pedagogy, Professor Magee recently published “Contemplative Practices and the Renewal of Legal Education,” New Directions for Teaching and Learning: Contemplative Studies in Higher Education, no. 134, (Jossey Bass, 2013), 31." Magee's courses share a common theme of examining how law responds to the vulnerable in society. She is the author of numerous journal articles, including "Educating Lawyers to Meditate?" (University of Missouri-Kansas City Law Review, 2011), "Slavery as Immigration?" (University of San Francisco Law Review, 2009), and "Competing Narratives, Competing Jurisprudences: Are Law Schools Racist?" (University of San Francisco Law Review, 2009).
