Recruitment

We solicit diverse candidates for on-campus and lateral attorney interviews, and we also participate in diverse recruitment and community outreach programs. Learn more about Careers at Calfee.

Calfee Diversity Mentorship

Through our Calfee Diversity Mentorship program, we identify a first-year law student and provide them mentoring advice throughout their law school career. The program also gives them an opportunity to participate in our Summer Associates program the summer following their first year of law school. 

To find out more about Calfee’s involvement in this program, contact Hiring Committee Chair, John J. McGuire.

Judicial Clerkship Program

We help sponsor minority law students in a judicial clerkship program, which is run by the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association. This program provides paid summer judicial externships to minority law students who have completed their second year.

Navigating Calfee

Calfee hires talented people who are at a variety of stages in their careers. For lateral hires, the transition into a new firm, or from a corporate or government environment into a firm, can be a challenge. We want to make this transition as smooth as possible and get new hires integrated into the Calfee culture, so we designed Navigating Calfee for those attorneys who may already have experience and know-how under their belts but need assistance finding their way through the inner workings of the firm. This program ensures attorneys meet people in a variety of practice groups through formal meetings and informal social gatherings to give each new attorney insight into our history, experience and culture.

To find out more about Calfee’s involvement in this program, contact Associates Committee Chair K. James Sullivan or Professional Recruiting Coordinator Kate Davis.

Mentors Within the Walls of Calfee

When attorneys start at Calfee, each is assigned a mentor, someone who shepherds his or her career growth. These mentors are not necessarily in the same practice area but have an interest in integrating new attorneys into the fold.

We also have a small-group mentoring program in which our attorneys are banded together with colleagues at the same stage of their career and mentored together by a group of partners on issues specific to where they are at in their career progression.

To find out more about Calfee’s involvement in this program, contact Associates Committee Chair K. James Sullivan or Professional Recruiting Coordinator Kate Davis.
