Shim Law is a full service law firm located in Calgary, Alberta. We are always looking for ways to support our next generation of leaders which is why the Annual Shim Law Scholarship was created.

This year, we want to focus on family law and have our 2 topics to be centred around this practice:

  1. What kind of social media evidence do the courts tend to view or consider more or less in family law matters?
    • Please explain this with the use of an infographic and use credible data to support your claims.
    • Please also include a case law analysis.
  2. What is required in a cohabitation or prenuptial agreement to make it valid in the eyes of the court? What are the benefits of setting up such an agreement prior to marriage or common law relationship?
    • Please explain this with the use of a infographic and use credible data to support your claims. Please also include a case law analysis.
    • Please remember to source any data you may use on your submission as well.
