A cum laude graduate of the Hofstra University, Maurice A. Deane School of Law (which she attended on an honors scholarship), Weitzman also holds a degree in journalism from Northwestern University and has been published in a number of diverse magazines.  She has previously interned at the National Advertising Division (NAD) of the Council of Better Business Bureaus in Manhattan and the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs, as well as served as a judicial intern for the Honorable A. Kathleen Tomlinson of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

Weitzman is a member of the Consumer Affairs Committee at the New York City Bar Association and the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Law Section at the New York State Bar Association.  In addition, she has served as a member of the Hofstra Intellectual Property Law Association, the Courtroom Advocates Project (CAP), the Hofstra Law Professionalism and Career Development Advisory Council and the Hofstra Law Student Ambassador Program.
