The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Segu as a judge to the Provincial Court in Meadow Lake.
“We have a longstanding tradition of appointing some of the best legal minds in Canada to our Provincial Court, and Judge Segu continues this practice,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said. “Judge Segu brings with him 21 years of experience as a Crown Prosecutor on a wide variety of cases, which will no doubt serve him and the people of this province well as he moves into his new position as a Provincial Court judge.”
Judge Segu received his law degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 1997. After completing his articles with the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General, Judge Segu permanently joined the ministry as a Crown Prosecutor in Meadow Lake, where he prosecuted for nearly four years. Judge Segu transferred to the Saskatoon prosecutions office in 2001, where he began working with the Saskatoon Police Service’s Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit, and later the Saskatchewan Integrated ICE Unit.
As a result of his experience working on ICE prosecutions, Judge Segu is a nationally recognized expert on this type of work. In 2014, Judge Segu became the Associate Regional Crown Prosecutor in the Saskatoon Prosecutions office, where he assisted in overseeing all Saskatoon prosecutions and prosecutions staff.
An arts enthusiast, Judge SEGU has devoted time to his community in a wide variety of roles. In the past ten years, he has served on the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan board of directors, volunteered his time to the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, and taken part in a home build for Habitat for Humanity.
