Provincial Court Judge Appointed in La Ronge

Released on March 23, 2018

The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the appointment of Mary McAuley as a judge to the Provincial Court in La Ronge.

“Judge McAuley is an exceptional appointment to the bench,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said.  “She has made valuable contributions to the legal profession in the province for more than 10 years.  Her diverse experience will certainly enhance the judicial system in our province.”

Judge McAuley received a law degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 2006.  She articled with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice, and practiced law in Prince Albert.  She spent time as a Crown prosecutor, defence lawyer with legal aid and as a private lawyer.  She has practiced with McAuley Law Firm since 2012, which she started on her own in Prince Albert.

Judge McAuley was raised in Northern Saskatchewan and is one of the only fluent Cree speaking Métis female lawyers in the province.  Her ability to use her first language of Cree and cultural understandings in working and communicating with Cree speaking citizens in the justice system will be an asset in helping them navigate the court process.  As a Métis woman who grew up in Cumberland House and a lawyer whose clients are largely First Nation and Métis people, she has a unique awareness and understanding of their circumstances and needs.
