The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce that Robert Lane, Q.C., has been appointed as a judge of the Provincial Court for La Ronge.
"The appointment of Judge Lane will enhance the judicial system in the northern part of our province," Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said. "Judge Lane's distinguished career, both as a prosecutor and defence lawyer provides him with a unique perspective in this new role."
Judge Lane graduated from the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan in 1979 and was called to the Bar in 1980. In 1983, he became managing partner in the Bradley and Lane law firm in Shellbrook. He left private practice in 2004 to join the Public Prosecutions Division of the Ministry of Justice as a Senior Crown Prosecutor, before being appointed Regional Crown Prosecutor.
Over the past 33 years, Judge Lane's legal career has focused on criminal law in central and northern Saskatchewan. He has also participated in various types of civil litigation, including family law and municipal law.
Throughout his career, he has been a member of the Saskatchewan Trial Lawyers Association and continues to take many courses in Continuing Legal Education. He also has a great fondness for the outdoors and enjoys hunting and fishing.
Judge Lane replaces Judge Felicia Daunt, who is transferring to the Provincial Court in Prince Albert.
