KUDOS! Anne Derrick (LLB '80) appointed to Nova Scotia's highest court
The Schulich School of Law congratulates alumna Anne Derrick (LLB '80), a provincial and family court judge, on her appointment to the province’s highest court, the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal. She replaces Justice Ted Scanlan, who went from full-time to supernumerary status last September.
After graduating from Dalhousie law school, Derrick was called to the Nova Scotia bar in 1981. Before becoming a judge, she was a partner in the firm of Buchan, Derrick & Ring, focusing on public interest and equality litigation, criminal law, and social justice advocacy. In 2005 she was named to the provincial and family courts, and she has handled longer adult and youth cases in Halifax since 2011.
“I am delighted that Justice Derrick will be joining us on the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal,” Chief Justice Michael MacDonald said in a news release. “Nova Scotians are very lucky to have someone with her tremendous knowledge and expertise on the bench.”
