Mihailis Diamantis writes about corporate crime and philosophy. His current legal research addresses tangible problems in corporate criminal law by drawing inspiration from the concept of "person" as used in ethics, epistemology, and cognitive science. His current work in philosophy develops an account of the nature of action that is responsive to the folk practices of responsibility attribution. He has subsidiary interests in privacy law and surveillance.
Prior to joining the faculty at Iowa, Mihailis was an instructor and researcher at Columbia Law School. He clerked for Judge Alex Kozinski on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and worked on white collar investigations as an attorney at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP.
