Callies often talks about the fantastic potential Manoa law students have and how they should make the most of their experiences at the school. Despite his busy schedule, he is available to answer questions and offer advice. A colleague observed that while Callies may sometimes act curmudgeonly, he is caring, committed and often very humorous.
