Janet Weinstein

Professor of Law Emerita

JD University of San Diego [magna cum laude]
BA University of California, Los Angeles

During her 35 years at the law school, Weinstein was a pioneer in promoting and improving clinical legal education. In 1977 she transformed a fledgling externship program into the Clinical Internship Program—a nationally recognized program that provides students with invaluable hands-on experience—and in 2004 helped develop the acclaimed STEPPS Program. Weinstein’s accomplishments go far beyond practical education. She has assisted many organizations dedicated to justice for juveniles, especially those who have been abused, neglected, or incarcerated. One of her proudest achievements was co-founding California Western’s Community Law Project.
