Cathy Lahey, QC, appointed to Judicial Advisory Committee in New Brunswick
We are pleased to announce that Cathy Lahey, QC, partner in our Saint John office, has been appointed to the Department of Justice’s Judicial Advisory Committee (“JAC”) in New Brunswick for a two-year term.
This comes as part of an announcement from The Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, who appointed members in five provincial jurisdictions, adding to the existing complement of JACs.
JACs are independent bodies which were formed as part of a new process, announced in October 2016, to assess federal judicial applicants and provide the Minister of Justice with lists of high-calibre candidates who represent the diversity of Canada.
Cathy joins Twila Reid, partner in our St. John’s office, who was appointed to the JAC in Newfoundland and Labrador earlier this year.
