While at King's Weinstein will help organize an international conference, jointly sponsored by ASU and Cambridge University, on threats to the modern university and scientific research, as well as conduct research on comparative constitutional law.
King's College was founded in 1441 by Henry VI and is one of the 31 colleges in the University of Cambridge. In addition to having a superlative academic reputation, King's also is world-famous for its chapel and choir.
In Time magazine's 2000 list of the 100 most 'influential and important' people of the 20th century, King's was the only European institution that could claim two: Alan Turing and John Maynard Keynes, both of whom were Fellows of King's.
Weinstein's areas of academic interest are constitutional law, especially free speech, as well as jurisprudence and legal history. He is co-editor of Extreme Speech and Democracy (Oxford University Press, 2009), author of Hate Speech, Pornography, and the Radical Attack On Free Speech Doctrine (Westview Press, 1999), and has written numerous articles in law review symposia on a variety of free speech topics, including: obscenity doctrine, institutional review boards, commercial speech, database protection, campaign finance reform, the relationship between free speech and other constitutional rights, hate crimes, and campus speech codes. He has also written several articles on the history of personal jurisdiction and its implication for modern doctrine. Weinstein is an Associate Fellow of the Centre for Public Law at the University of Cambridge.
