Molly Wilder

Adjunct Faculty

professional ethics of lawyers, autonomy, virtue ethics, feminist philosophy, philosophy of tort law, minors’ rights

Molly received her law degree from Georgetown University Law Center in 2016 and is currently working on a dissertation that brings together the professional ethics of lawyers, neo-Aristotelian virtue ethics, and feminist theories of relational autonomy. She wants to know, how can lawyers promote the autonomy of their clients, and what does autonomy mean in that context? When not philosophizing, Molly enjoys reading and writing children’s fantasy, finding places to eat great food, and bad puns.
