Santiago Mollis holds a J.S.D. from Cornell Law School. His research and teaching are located at the intersection of criminal law, criminology, and political theory. Santiago’s scholarship engages both theoretical and practical lines of inquiry into the limits of the adversarial criminal process in addressing harm, as well as the legitimate character of criminal punishment.
During his J.S.D., Santiago collaborated with the Cornell Center on Death Penalty Worldwide and Cornell Law’s Gender Justice Clinic. Before joining Cornell, he clerked for the Public Prosecutor’s Office within the Federal Criminal Appellate Court in Buenos Aires. He also worked as a teaching assistant at the Universidad de Palermo and Universidad de Buenos Aires.
