The Law Society is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of the Right Honourable Karen E. Hewitt. Justice Hewitt spent much of her career as a Crown Prosecutor where she handled complex prosecutions and major cases. She served as a Bencher with the Law Society in 2018 until she was appointed to the Alberta Court of Justice that same year.
Our thoughts are with the friends, colleagues and loved ones who are impacted by this loss and thank Justice Hewitt for her service to the Law Society and to Alberta’s legal profession for so many years.
A Celebration of Life will be held Thursday, Sept. 28 from 5:30–6:30 p.m. at the Zeidler Dome, Telus World of Science, 11211-142 Street NW, Edmonton, AB.
