Santa Clara University School of Law student Annie Wang placed third in the 2006 ABA Family Law Section Howard C. Schwab Memorial Essay contest. The title of her essay is"Unmarried Cohabitation: What Can We Learn From a Comparison Between the United States and China?"

This annual contest, conducted by the ABA Section of Family Law, was established by the Toledo Bar Association and the Ohio Bar Foundation as a memorial to Howard C. Schwab, a Past President of the Toledo Bar Association and Past Chairman of the Family Law Committee of the Ohio Bar Association. He was Chairman-Elect of the Section of Family Law at the time of his death on February 24, 1969. In 1985, the Section of Family Law assumed full responsibility for sponsoring this contest.

The purpose of the contest is to create greater interest in the field of family law among all law students, and particularly the Law Student Division of the American Bar Association.
