The Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, Jody Wilson-Raybould, has announced several new judges in Quebec, British Columbia, Alberta and Newfoundland and Labrador — all under the new judicial application process the government announced last fall.
The new process emphasizes transparency, merit and diversity in the appointment of jurists.
From Langlois Avocats, partner Karen Rogers was appointed a judge of the Superior Court of Quebec, district of Montreal. The position she fills is a new one created by Bill C-31. Before her appointment to the judiciary, Rogers led the litigation group at the firm.
