KUDOS! Alumnus W. Paul Riley (LLB '95) appointed to the Supreme Court of British Columbia
The Schulich School of Law would like to congratulate alumnus W. Paul Riley, QC (LLB ’95) for his appointment to the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Riley will take the place of Madam Justice C. J. Ross, who became a supernumerary (part-time) judge in April 2016.
After graduating from the law school, Riley articled with the Department of Justice in Vancouver before assuming his role as Crown counsel with the Public Prosecution Service of Canada. Over the course of his career, he appeared as lead counsel in a number of criminal and constitutional cases tried before the Supreme Court of Canada. In 2007, he became the head of the British Columbia Regional Office’s appeals group.
In the spirit of the Weldon Tradition of unselfish public service, Riley often volunteers with the Salvation Army’s B.C.-based Gateway of Hope homeless shelter and lends his expertise to an Access Pro Bono legal clinic.
