A new judge has been appointed to the provincial court in La Ronge. 

Erin Layton earned his law degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 2000 and began work as a lawyer with Eisner Mahon Burningham in Melfort. She went on to work as a lawyer with the Saskatchewan Legal Aid Commission in both Prince Albert and La Ronge, according to a release from the province. 

Layton hails from Missinipe and graduated from Churchill High School in La Ronge. She served as a mentor for a number of lawyers in Prince Albert and La Ronge.
