Canadian Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Minister MacKay

The Canadian Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Minister MacKay, will be speaking about his role as a lawyer: from his time as a law student, to prosecutor, to becoming the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, as well as other opportunities that emerge from the field of law.

In July 2013, Mr. MacKay was appointed Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada. Previously, he was appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs and Minister of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency in February 2006 and Minister of National Defence in August 2007.

Before entering politics, Mr. MacKay had a private law practice in New Glasgow, specializing in criminal and family law. In 1993, he accepted an appointment as Crown Attorney for the Central Region of Nova Scotia. He prosecuted cases at all levels, including youth and provincial courts as well as the Supreme Court of Canada.
