Visiting Professor William K. Weinstein has returned to the William S. Richardson School of Law this summer to offer open lectures on “Ethics and Integrity in the Real World.”

These lectures are a part of a public summer conversation series held in conjunction with an annual Law School Ethics Course. Weinstein, money manager and former partner in two very successful investment banking firms, currently teaches at San Francisco State University, and leads a post graduate summer course, “Ethics and Integrity in the Real World,” at the Law School and Shidler College of Business.
This is Weinstein’s ninth summer teaching the course, introducing special guest speakers to the university and helping to make this conversation series available to the public. As an added benefit for Hawai‘i lawyers, each session is eligible for 1.5 Mandatory Continuing Professional Education (MCPE) credits for attorneys licensed in the State of Hawai‘i, in compliance with Hawai‘i State Supreme Court Rule 22. (Limited seating is available for each lecture.)

The lectures will be held from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at the UH Mānoa William S. Richardson School of Law, Classroom 2. The “Ethics in Education” lecture with Michelle Rhee and Kevin Johnson on August 7 will be held at the UH Mānoa Architecture Auditorium. Parking is $6 after 4:00 p.m. on the UH Mānoa campus.
