May Shendye

Calgary Student at Law

May recently joined the Calgary office as an articling student in 2022. May attended the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan from 2018 to 2021 where she obtained her JD. During May’s time in law school, she represented the College at the 2020 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot in Toronto and served as a research assistant for Professor Barbara von Tigerstrom in 2020 regarding Canadian border restrictions and WHO regulations. She also volunteered with the Pro Bono Students Association, including working with the City of Saskatoon on their Equity Lens Project.

May grew up in Calgary and is excited to be back. May is a graduate of Sir Winston Churchill High School and attended the University of Calgary from 2013 to 2018, where she obtained her B.Comm. in Finance and her B.A. in Political Science. While at the University of Calgary, May volunteered with the Students’ Union, the Volunteer Tax Clinic, and served as Vice President Academic for the Commerce Undergraduate Society, where she organized the inaugural Haskayne Oil and Gas Case Competition.

Outside of the office, May is very enthusiastic about baking (especially cinnamon buns) and experimenting in the kitchen, and enjoys hiking, travelling, watching bad reality tv shows, and attending concerts. She is currently attempting to determine which coffee shop in Calgary makes the best caramel macchiato.
