After several years as an engineer, he returned to Stanford to study law, receiving his J.D. in 1929. He joined the faculty in the Law School that same year, reaching the rank of professor in 1937; his specialty was business law. Rathbun, along with his wife Emilia, founded several non-profit organizations interested in social justice and anti-war issues.
