Justice Stang has experience in private practice and in serving as a government prosecutor. Most recently, Justice Stang was with the Regina Public Prosecutions office.

For 18 months in 2013 and 2014, Judge Stang was a trial lawyer with the Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands. At the start of his career, Judge Stang was in private practice in the Northwest Territories for five years

“Judge Stang is an exceptional appointment to the bench,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said. “He has made valuable contributions to the legal community and public service across the province, Canada and the world for more than 20 years. His knowledge, experience and demonstrated abilities will certainly enhance the judicial system in our province.”

Justice Stang replaces Justice J. Rybchuk, who is transferring to the Provincial Court in Regina.
