Callan Showers joined Relman Colfax in 2019 for a two-year term as a civil rights paralegal. Her work focuses on supporting the firm's civil rights litigation and civil rights counseling practices.
Callan graduated in 2019 from Stanford University with a B.A. in American Studies, with distinction, and a minor in Political Science. During college, Callan was a mentor and Co-President of the Stanford branch of Women and Youth Supporting Each Other (WYSE), an organization that facilitates weekly mentorship sessions between college women and middle school girls in under-resourced communities about topics including race and discrimination, sexual health, and community action. She received the Stanford Haas Center for Public Service’s Advancing Gender Equity Fellowship for a summer internship at Gender Justice, a nonprofit law firm in her home state of Minnesota, where she worked on trial preparation and policy advocacy on behalf of women and LGBTQIA+ clients. Callan also conducted legal research for an upcoming book about the intersection of church, state, and public schools in America, was a member of the Public Service Honors Society, and published an essay in the Georgetown Undergraduate Law Review.
In her free time, Callan loves road trips, being outdoors, and trying new coffee shops. She hopes to attend law school after her time at the firm.
