A Saskatchewan lawyer is being recognized for her contributions to the legal profession and public service with the Queen’s Counsel (Q.C.) designation.
Foluke Laosebikan, LLB, LLM, Ph.D received her Queen’s Counsel appointment in February 2021. She is with FLK Law Firm in Melfort and she was admitted to the bar in 2011.
“I’m pleased to recognize Dr. Laosebikan for her commitment to the legal community and her dedication as the President of the Law Society of Saskatchewan,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said. “She is well-deserving of the Queen’s Counsel designation.”
Queen’s Counsel appointments are based on recommendations from a committee consisting of Saskatchewan’s Minister of Justice and Attorney General, the Chief Justice of the Court of Appeal for Saskatchewan or the Chief Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench and the past presidents of the Saskatchewan branch of the Canadian Bar Association and the Law Society of Saskatchewan.
Individuals must live in Saskatchewan and must have practiced law for at least 10 years in the superior courts of any province or territory of Canada, the United Kingdom or Ireland.
