SABABC would like to recognize and support the appointment of diverse candidates to the bench this year.
SABABC congratulates former SABABC member Justice Jasmin Ahmad, Q.C. on her appointment to the British Columbia Supreme Court. Justice Ahmad was appointed on September 9, 2020 and will be sitting in Vancouver. Prior to her appointment, Justice Ahmad was a respected commercial litigator in Vancouver as well as a Bencher of the Law Society of British Columbia.
SABABC also congratulates former SABABC member Judge Satinder Sidhu on her appointment to the British Columbia Provincial Court. Judge Sidhu was appointed on March 30, 2020 and assigned to the Fraser Region with chambers in Surrey. Prior to her appointment, Judge Sidhu served as Crown counsel for New Westminster, BC’s busiest Crown counsel region.
SABABC asks its members to join in congratulating Justice Ahmad and Judge Sidhu on their appointments. Both will no doubt be champions of diversity.
