Callie Caldwell has been named as the first public interest counselor in the Office of Career Services at the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law at the University of Memphis. She will assist with the implementation of the mandatory pro bono requirement that goes into effect with the entering class of 2012.  Among her duties, she will identify existing pro bono opportunities, develop additional such opportunities by reaching out to the bench and bar, and assist each student in locating pro bono opportunities to help develop legal skills relevant to the student’s planned career path. 

She will also inform and advise students about public interest, government, and judicial clerkship opportunities, coordinating with the faculty advisor for judicial clerkships on the latter objective.   She will also work with Assistant Dean Estelle Winsett on matters relating to career placement in general, including reviewing students’ resumes and cover letters, conducting mock interviews, and career counseling.    

Caldwell is a 2010 graduate of the University of Memphis law school, where she served as a notes editor for the University of Memphis Law Review.  Following graduation she spent a year as a judicial clerk for Federal Magistrate Judge Diane Vescovo.  She is admitted to practice in Tennessee and South Carolina.
