Professor Molly Corey joined the faculty at Capital in August of 2018 after practicing law in state government for twelve years. She served as an Assistant Attorney General in Ohio from 2006 to 2012 and again from 2015 to 2018, primarily representing the Ohio Department of Natural Resources with a focus on oil and gas and mining law. In between her time at the AG’s office, she served as in-house counsel to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Oil and Gas Resources Management. Originally an English major in college, her unexpected career in the natural resources field provided her with some opportunities that most attorneys do not receive, like spending time in a coal mine in West Virginia and touring shale drilling rigs in Eastern Ohio. Professor Corey is originally from the Dayton area, and currently lives in Hilliard with her family. She is an avid hockey fan, and enjoys following our Columbus Blue Jackets. 

Professor Corey earned her Juris Doctor, cum laude, from Capital University Law School and was a member of 2004-2005 Capital University Law Review staff. She earned her B.A. from The College of Wooster in 2001.
