Justin Weinstein-Tull is a Thomas C. Grey Fellow and Lecturer in Law. He studies election law, state and local government law, civil procedure, and federalism. His most recent projects examine the ways in which different federal laws filter down through state administrative bodies and local governments to the people they target. He has previously written about the effects of our decentralized elections system on the right to vote. He teaches Legal Research and Writing and Federal Litigation.
Before joining Stanford Law School in 2014, Justin was an attorney in the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice. There, he enforced federal voting laws in suits against states and local governments and was part of the team that defended the constitutionality of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act in Shelby County v. Holder. He was also a litigation associate in the San Francisco office of Munger, Tolles & Olson. After receiving his law degree from Yale Law School and a Master’s in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School, he clerked for Judge Sidney Thomas on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He received his undergraduate degree from Stanford University.
