Saskatchewan's newest Provincial Court Judge was sworn in May 13.

Judge Karl Bazin was appointed to the Provincial Court of Estevan Mar. 11.

He replaced Judge Jeffrey Kalmakof, who transferred to Regina.

“We are pleased to be apple to appoint someone with Judge Bazin’s varied and considerable experience to the Bench,” said Don Morgan, Saskatchewan Justice Minister and Attorney General.

“His demonstrated commitment to the law and his community will serve him – and our justice system – well in his new role.”

Bazin became partner at MacBean Tessem in 1987 after joining the Swift Current law firm in 1985. 

In 2005 he was appointed to Queen’s Counsel, and received the Saskatchewan Centennial Medal the same year.

Bazin practised civil, criminal, and family law during his tenure, and was actively involved with the Canadian Bar Association and the Law Society of Sask. (LSS).

He served as Vice President and President to the LSS in 2008 and 2009 respectively.

Bazin was also active in many community organizations including the Swift Current Museum board, the Lyric Theatre,, Big Brothers and Sisters, Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation, and the Canadian Bomber Command Museum.
