DETROIT – Professor Jonathan T. Weinberg is Wayne State University Law School’s inaugural associate dean for research and faculty development.

Weinberg’s job as associate dean is to support and promote faculty scholarship and academic achievement. Since joining Wayne Law’s faculty in 1988, he has written about subjects including privacy law, internet governance, free speech law, immigration law, communications law and administrative law.

“Over the course of his 30-year career at Wayne Law, Professor Weinberg has earned great respect from his colleagues here and across the country, and has distinguished himself as an innovative and productive scholar in his fields,” said Dean Richard A. Bierschbach. “We are lucky to have him in this new position.”

Weinberg was a law clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and for then-Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg; a visiting scholar at the University of Tokyo’s Institute of Journalism and Communication Studies; a legal scholar in residence at the Federal Communications Commission’s Office of Plans and Policy; a visiting scholar at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law; a professor in residence at the U.S. Department of Justice; and a practicing lawyer in Washington, D.C. He chaired a working group created by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the international body that administers the internet domain name system, to develop recommendations on the creation of new internet top level domains. He is a member of the editorial board of Wayne State University Press. In 2017, he received the Law School’s Donald H. Gordon Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Weinberg earned his bachelor’s from Harvard University and his law degree from Columbia Law School.
