Queen's Counsel AppointmentsFriday, December 14, 2018Janice L. MacCallum, Donald K. MacKenzie and Ronald J. Keefe have been selected as 2018 appointments to Queen’s Counsel, a top recognition in the field of law.
“I congratulate this year’s appointees. This designation is given to lawyers who have demonstrated excellence in the practice of law and recognizes their contributions to the justice system as well as their community,” said Jordan Brown, minister of Justice and Public Safety and Attorney General.
Presented annually, the Queen’s Counsel designation goes back to the 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.
