Retired Judge Irwin E. Lampert
I was born in Montreal , moved to Moncton at a very young age and have lived and worked here ever since, except during my years away at university.
I am a graduate of Moncton High School, Dalhousie University (Science degree) and the University of New Brunswick Law School. I practiced law in Moncton for many years with a large practice in Family Law, before being appointed a provincial court judge. I presided in courts across New Brunswick hearing mainly criminal matters, including Youth Court.
While practicing law, I was active in many different organizations including Moncton Headstart, the Canadian Cancer Society and as General Counsel for the Canadian Jewish Congress. In addition, I am the proud recipient of the City of Moncton Commemorative Medal.
For many years I was involved with various judges’ associations. I served terms as President of the New Brunswick Provincial Court Judges’ Association, the Canadian Association of Provincial Court Judges and was a Governor of the American Judges’ Association. For a number of years I was a member of the New Brunswick Judicial Council, a body which deals with complaints filed against judges.

In 2019, I retired from the Court and began a busy schedule of volunteering and other work which now occupies much of my time. I am a volunteer at the Moncton Hospital, a Director of South East New Brunswick Hospice and a member of the Codiac Regional Policing Authority, the body which oversees the work of the RCMP in our area. I am also a member of Rotary and Probus clubs. Furthermore, I preside over hearings for inmates charged with offences committed within the institution at the federal women’s prison in Truro, N.S.
Annually since 2005, I have lectured in China. As well, I have given presentations to judges, high school students, parole officers, service clubs and community college students.
I have presided at more than 150 weddings since the first one in July 2020. As well, I have acted as Master of Ceremonies at wedding receptions and other public events.
My wife, Audrey, is a retired school teacher and administrator. We are proud parents of 3 adult children and have 6 grandchildren.
