Provincial Court of British Columbia


Ann Rounthwaite offers the unique blend of a writing and communications background combined with experience as a lawyer and judge. She has the capacity to produce compelling, high-quality communication materials in varied media and styles - proven in work ranging from web and social media writing to judgments. She adds to this an in-depth understanding of Canadian law, courts, and justice issues and the ability to explain complex concepts in plain language.

"Among Canadian provincial court judges, Ann Rounthwaite stands out for her commitment to clear and persuasive writing for ordinary citizens. She has a rare capacity to explain her reasons for judgment to the parties, even those unrepresented by counsel, and to the community at large.” - Edward Berry, author of Writing Reasons: A Handbook for Judges; Professor Emeritus, University of Victoria Department of English.
