At CAL we recognize the importance of a collegial, supportive, and inclusive environment. We are at our best collectively when each member of our staff is at their best individually. Whether through our mentorship program or our weekly team meetings, we take pride in developing new generations of appellate defenders. Additionally, our in-house CLE seminars ensure that everyone, no matter their experience level, can stay abreast of new legal trends. 


We also recognize the significance of lived experience, both to the practice and to the well-being of our staff. To that end, our Better Days Program offers a client or former client the opportunity to gain valuable experience and enhance their resume with a one-year paid fellowship in our office. Our Color Collective is another facet of our commitment to inclusivity, providing a nurturing and safe space for socializing, community-building, and dialogue.
