Callahan earned his law degree from Nashville School of Law, where he was honored with the Moot Court Award. He is also a member of NSL’s Cooper’s Inn Honor Society. Callahan holds a master’s degree in taxation from the University of Alabama, from which he earlier graduated cum laude upon completion of his bachelor’s degree in political science and economics.
