courthouse2Prince George, B.C.-  Two   women, who have been practicing law in Prince George,  will soon be  seeing the court room from the other side of the  bench.

Cassandra Malfair,   who has been  a Crown Counsel in Prince George  as a senior trial Crown  and  Susan Mengering  who also has Crown Counsel  experience   are two of  six  Provincial Court Judges  appointed by  the Province today.

The appointments are to offset  upcoming retirements.

Judge Cassandra Malfair’s  experience includes insolvency and constitutional law, as well as regulatory experience in securities and insurance. After graduating with an LLB from UBC in 2000, Malfair held positions in two firms in private practice in Vancouver and Calgary before joining the Ministry of Justice in 2007.

Judge Susan Mengering has spent most of her career in criminal law since her graduation with an LLB from UBC in 2000. Since 2003, Mengering has served as Crown counsel for the Ministry of Justice and initially prosecuted cases in
Fort Ware/TsayKeh, Mackenzie, Valemount and McBride. Now based primarily in Prince George, she has worked on increasingly complex files as a trial lawyer and volunteers with community organizations.

Their appointments take effect January 9th.


Congratulations, Susan!

    That would be Your Honour Susan to you. :)

      Only in court, LOL

      By the way, good common sense comments on the overdose issue.

Congratulations Judge Malfair and Judge Mengering.
We are fortunate to have you both!!!
