Darin Clayton Chow of Moose Jaw, has been appointed a judge of the Provincial Court for Yorkton.
"We are pleased to appoint Judge Chow to this new role," Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said. "His impressive law experience and the dedication he's demonstrated to the community will be beneficial as he serves the justice system as a Provincial Court judge."
Judge Chow graduated from the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan in 1994 and was called to the Bar in 1995. He practiced as an associate with Whittaker, Craik and Chow until 1997 when he became a partner of Chow & Company, later known as Chow McLeod.
Judge Chow's legal career includes experience in criminal defence and family law. He was appointed an Inquest Coroner in 2008 and has presided over three Coroner's Inquests in Regina. Throughout his career, he has participated in various professional associations, including the Saskatchewan Trial Lawyers Association.
Being involved in the community is important to Judge Chow. He has been elected twice to the Moose Jaw City Council. He has also been actively involved in many community organizations and was a founding member of the Moose Jaw Businessmen's Club, which raises funds for important causes.
Judge Chow replaces Judge Klause, who is transferring to the Provincial Court in Saskatoon.
