Attorney Molly McNulty officially filed today for the Arkansas Court of Appeals – District 6, Position 1, which encompasses Pulaski, Saline, and Perry Counties. McNulty announced her candidacy in March and brings a robust record of legal experience and community service to her bid for the appellate court.
“I am running for the Court of Appeals because I want to continue to serve Arkansans in a meaningful way by faithfully upholding the principles of justice under the Constitution and laws of our State,” McNulty stated from the rotunda of the State Capitol, surrounded by her family.
Since 2015, McNulty has honed her expertise in appellate law as a law clerk for the Honorable Raymond Abramson at the Arkansas Court of Appeals. Her role has involved crafting hundreds of draft opinions and offering counsel on intricate legal matters, providing her with a solid foundation for understanding the appellate court system and Arkansas law.
McNulty’s legal journey began clerking for U.S. Magistrate Judge Joe Volpe in the Eastern District of Arkansas. McNulty’s academic credenHals include an undergraduate degree from Davidson College, a Master of Public Service from the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service, and a Juris Doctor from the UALR Bowen School of Law. Furthermore, her commitment to legal education is evident through her tenure as an adjunct professor at the UALR Bowen School of Law.
McNulty is deeply embedded in the fabric of central Arkansas’s civic life. Her leadership spans many organizations, including the Arkansas Bar Association’s Board of Trustees where she co-chaired their 125th Annual meeting and The Rotary Club of Little Rock (Club 99) where she was honored as the 2022-2023 Rotarian of the Year and serves as Secretary of the Board. Her community impact stretches even further as the Chair of the Leadership Greater Little Rock Alumni Board and Vice Chair of the Central Arkansas Library System Foundation Board. McNulty also currently sits on the Board of Directors of Camp Aldersgate, the Arkansas Repertory Theatre, the Historic Arkansas Museum foundation, and is on the Board of Advisors for the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra.
“I have dedicated my life to public service and am deeply passionate about our community. I would be honored to continue to serve our State as a Judge on the Arkansas Court of Appeals,” said McNulty.
Family and faith play a central role in McNulty’s life. She and her husband, Chris, along with their two children are actively involved in Christ Episcopal Church, grounding her public service in a strong sense of community and ethical values.
The election for the Court of Appeals is a pivotal moment for Arkansas’s legal landscape, and McNulty’s candidacy promises a continuation of her dedicated service to the principles of justice and community growth.
