About 2017 Queens Counsel Appointments
“Lawyers who receive the Queen’s Counsel designation are selected by their peers for their outstanding career achievements and their work in the community,” said Premier Wade MacLauchlan, minister of Justice and Public Safety and attorney general. “Alanna Taylor, Thomas Laughlin and John Maynard have all made valuable contributions to the top-calibre justice system in our province.”
Presented annually, the Queen’s Counsel designation goes back to 16th century England, when one or two senior barristers of the High Court were entrusted with providing the Crown with legal counsel.
This year’s recipients will be formally recognized during a ceremony at Government House by the Honourable Lieutenant Governor Antoinette Perry.
