A lawyer with extensive experience in northern Saskatchewan has been named a provincial court judge in Prince Albert.


Stanley David Loewen began his legal career by articling with the La Ronge office of Saskatchewan Legal Aid, which saw him travel to northern communities.


He has conducted prosecutions in a variety of northern communities as an agent of the Attorney General since establishing a private practice in Prince Albert in 1979.


For the past 20 years, Loewen has maintained a branch office in La Ronge.


He received a Queen’s Counsel designation in 1996.


Loewen has also been a Labour Standards adjudicator, a member of hearing panels under the Saskatchewan Human Rights Code, a member of the Board of Revision for the City of Prince Albert and has participated in various arbitration boards.


Justice Minister Frank Quennell says Loewen’s connection to northern Saskatchewan will serve him well in his new role as a provincial court judge.
