The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the appointment of Lloyd Stang as a judge to the Provincial Court in Melfort. “Judge Stang is an exceptional appointment to the bench,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said. “He has made valuable contributions to the legal community and public service across the province, Canada and the world for more than 20 years. His knowledge, experience and demonstrated abilities will certainly enhance the judicial system in our province.” Judge Stang received a Law Degree from the Université de Moncton in 1992. He articled at Boyd Denroche and continued in private practice in the Northwest Territories for five years before joining Public Prosecutions in Meadow Lake in 1998. For 18 months in 2013 and 2014, he was a trial lawyer with the Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands before returning to Saskatchewan Public Prosecutions in Meadow Lake. Judge Stang has most recently been with the Regina Public Prosecutions office. Judge Stang has been active in several organizations, including the Centre Canadien de français juridique, Association des juristes d’expression française de la Saskatchewan, and Saskatchewan Crown Attorneys Association. He has also been a mentor to junior prosecutors, and a frequent presenter at prosecution conferences. Judge Stang is fluent in both English and French and will be able to conduct trials in French, thus contributing to the Court’s ability to provide services in both of Canada’s official languages. Judge Stang replaces Judge J. Rybchuk, who is transferring to the Provincial Court in Regina.
