The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the appointment of Bradley Shane Mitchell as a judge to the Provincial Court in Saskatoon.
"Judge Mitchell brings with him a breadth of experience and expertise that make him an excellent addition to the Provincial Court in Saskatoon," Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said. "I know that his understanding of the criminal justice system and his dedication to equality will serve him and the people of Saskatoon well as he takes on this new role."
Judge Mitchell received his law degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 2007 and articled with Cawood Walker Demmans Baldwin LLP in North Battleford and McDougall Gauley LLP in Saskatoon. He was called to the bar in 2008.
After being called to the bar, Judge Mitchell took a position as an associate with McDougall Gauley in Saskatoon, where he practiced criminal defence and litigation. He became a partner with McDougall Gauley in 2017 and joined the firm's executive committee in 2019.
Judge Mitchell has mentored many young lawyers, both within McDougall Gauley and through his volunteer work with Community Legal Assistance Services for Saskatoon Inner City Inc (CLASSIC) and the Saskatchewan College of Law.
He has also dedicated a significant amount of time throughout his career to helping individuals with disabilities. He has served on the board of directors for Autism Services Saskatoon, and has been a director with SaskAbilities since 2016.
