Dominique A. Jobin is a partner in the Litigation group in our Québec City office. She joined the firm after working in government for many years as a constitutional lawyer.

Dominique’s practice is focused on constitutional advice and litigation in various criminal, civil, administrative and disciplinary contexts, particularly with respect to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms (Quebec Charter). She is especially active in the areas of labour relations, privacy, language rights and policies, administrative and penal investigations, and health and education. She advises both public bodies and private companies in matters where their actions implicate human rights and freedoms.

With expertise in freedom of expression, democratic rights, privacy, language rights and the rights to liberty and security of the person, Dominique has advised government authorities for over thirty years on the compliance of draft laws and regulations—as well as government actions—with applicable constitutional and quasi-constitutional guarantees. She has represented the Attorney General of Quebec in numerous constitutional cases before the Quebec courts and has frequently appeared before the Supreme Court of Canada.

Dominique has taught courses on rights and freedoms at Université Laval’s Faculty of Law, and she is frequently called upon to speak to members of the legal community and the judiciary on human rights issues.
