The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Sanjeev Anand, Q.C., as a judge to the Provincial Court in Saskatoon.
“Judge Anand is an exceptional appointment to the bench,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said. “For more than 20 years, he has provided valuable contributions to the legal profession in Saskatchewan and Alberta. His experience will certainly enhance the judicial system in our province.”
Judge Anand received a Law Degree from Osgoode Hall Law School of York University in 1993. He later went on to complete a Master of Laws degree from the University of Alberta and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Law from Osgoode Hall Law School of York University. Dr. Anand began his career as a Legal Aid staff lawyer. He then worked as a Crown Prosecutor in Edmonton and Counsel in the Criminal Appeals Division of the Alberta Department of Justice.
In 1999, Dr. Anand became an assistant professor at the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan. Not long after, he moved back to Edmonton to work as a professor at the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Law. For ten years, he taught and researched in several areas, including criminal law, sentencing, and youth justice law. In 2011, he was appointed the Dean of the College of Law for the University of Saskatchewan.
Judge Anand replaces Judge Sheila Whelan, who retired in September.
