Provincial Court Judge Appointed in La Ronge

Released on November 5, 2021

The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the appointment of Dorinda Mae Stahl as a judge to the Provincial Court in La Ronge. 

"Judge Stahl is an outstanding lawyer with an extraordinary wealth of legal expertise," Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said. "She not only brings years of experience as a prosecutor, but also as a scholar and teacher. She will fulfill her duties as a Provincial Court judge with fairness and dedication." 

Judge Stahl received her law degree with distinction from the University of Saskatchewan in 2005 and articled with Scharfstein Gibbings Walen Fisher in Saskatoon. She was called to the bar in 2006. After two years in private practice, she started a career in the public service in 2008 as a Crown prosecutor with the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General's Public Prosecutions Branch.

Judge Stahl has practiced civil, family, and criminal law. In her position as a Crown prosecutor with Public Prosecutions, Judge Stahl has prosecuted a wide variety of matters including cases related to drinking and driving, youth offences and domestic violence.

She also prosecuted drug offences as Crown counsel during a secondment with the Public Prosecution Service of Canada between 2013 and 2015 before resuming her position as a senior Crown prosecutor with Public Prosecutions.

Judge Stahl instructed at the College of Law, University of Saskatchewan, for eight years on topics including sentencing, criminal procedure, and drinking and driving. Prior to that she instructed for eight years at the First Nations University of Canada in Regina, and the Department of Indigenous Studies at the University of Saskatchewan.

She was also part of a team that completely revamped Saskatchewan's legal education program for articling students, for which she wrote modules on Legal Ethics and Professionalism, Oral Advocacy and Criminal Law.

In addition to her legal studies, Judge Stahl completed a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) and a Master of Arts at the University of Saskatchewan. Her studies focused on History, Indigenous Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies.
