There's a new face at Stephenville's courthouse.

Felix Collins, justice minister and Attorney General, announced this week the appointment of Laura A. Mennie to Stephenville Provincial Court as a judge, effective Jan. 31.

He also announced that Pamela J. Goulding has been appointed to Provincial Court in St. John's, effective Jan. 30.

"Ms. Goulding and Ms. Mennie have a wealth of legal expertise which has made them well-suited to the duties of a Provincial Court judge," said Minister Collins, in a release. "They join the bench with a great deal of legal experience and knowledge. I welcome and congratulate them on their new positions."

Laura A. Mennie, Q.C., graduated from Memorial University in 1989 with a bachelor of arts degree in history and French. Also in 1989, she received the Lord Beaverbrook Scholarship from the University of New Brunswick.

She graduated from that university with a bachelor of laws degree in 1992. Upon completing her articles with the law firms of Stewart, McKelvey and Poole, Althouse, Ms. Mennie was called to the Bar of Newfoundland and Labrador on April 12, 1993.
