The world remains Alan Weinberger’s oyster. After earning a bachelor’s degree and JD from New York University and a Master of Laws from Harvard, the modern-day Renaissance man set off on a career journey (after a few years on Wall Street at a major law firm) that refuses conventional definitions. He served as the founding professor at the Vermont Law School.
