EDMONTON - Former Alberta premier Dave Hancock has been named a provincial court judge.

Hancock, who is 62, is to serve on the bench adjudicating family and youth matters in Edmonton.

As government house leader, he was also in charge of shepherding bills through the legislature.

He practised criminal, civil, family and corporate law before he went into politics.
