Law Spotlight: Michael Callier

Alumnus Michael Callier standing and smiling.

A former Oregon Ducks linebacker, Callier, JD '04, is recognized as a national leader in legal innovation. This multidisciplinary, multilingual attorney developed the first Global Legal Hackathon. The 54-hour project challenged schools, governments, international law firms, and leading technology corporations on six continents to develop solutions for improving the legal industry worldwide.

In November 2020, Callier joined Factor, a company that combines expert legal resourcing and market know-how with the process efficiency, smart legal technology, and data-driven project management of New Law to bridge a huge gap in the market. Callier has 16 years of experience in the legal industry guiding in-house legal operations and transformation efforts, as a consulting entrepreneur, and as a former general counsel and practicing attorney. As part of his new role, Callier will oversee Factor’s forthcoming solutions consulting practice, which will launch in the coming months..
