After studies in business, Shaheer earned his Juris Doctor (with distinction) from the University of Alberta in 2017. He joined Witten in 2017 as an articling student and his expected year of call is 2018.
During law school, Shaheer volunteered with the criminal law project at Student Legal Services, participated in Law Show, and competed in the Phillip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. In the summer of 2016 and over the following school year, he worked as a legal researcher for the Office of the General Counsel at the University of Alberta.
Shaheer enjoys reading, staying active, and – against better judgment – cheering for the Edmonton Oilers.
