Molea has led UNLZ since 2012. He is also an associate justice for Buenos Aires province’s Supreme Court and the director of the Judicial Studies Centre at UNLZ’s Law Faculty.

The academic sector agreed on Candis’ appointmenet following a meeting held in Jujuy province where it also determined that Hugo Juri, a Radical from the University of Córdoba, will take over the presidency of the National Inter-University Council (CIN).

Argentina's Magistrates Council appoints prosecutors and judges in low-level courts while also administering the Judiciary’s bureaucracy.
