Deans appointed as Queen’s Counsel


Dauphin’s Doug Deans was one of 10 Manitoba lawyers appointed as Queen’s Counsel in recognition of outstanding contributions to the practice of law, Justice Minister Cliff Cullen announced last week.
Queen’s Counsel is an honorary title given to a lawyer by the lieutenant-governor in council, based on recommendations made by the minister following consultation with an advisory council. To be considered, the lawyer must have demonstrated outstanding practice, shown integrity and leadership, made contributions to excellence in the profession and been in practice for at least 10 years.
“I was pretty happy when they had done that. It’s always nice to be recognized. It’s not why you do things, but it’s just a function of that,” Deans said.

More on Dean's reaction can be found in the May 19th Dauphin Herald.
