Captain Larry Langlois, Military Prosecutor, Judge Advocate General

Capt Langlois: Ha, ha, I can do the robot a bit too.

Hi, I’m Captain Larry Langlois. I’m a military prosecutor, and I’m here to take the ’60 Second Challenge’.

1. Would you say your average work day is more like an episode of Law & Order or Judge Judy?

Actually, I would prefer it was more like the drama ‘Suits’ sometimes. Next.

2. Why did you choose military law, and join the Canadian Forces and practice law?

Well, law touches all branches of the Canadian Armed Forces, and so I get to experience all these branches, and actually practice a profession that I like very much. Next one.

3. What is your favourite legal command to yell out?

Actually, I would say, “Your Honour, I rest my case.” It’s not a legal command, but it comes with a sense of a job well done.

4. What was your very first job?

When I joined the Forces I was 16 years-old. After some training, I had the chance to become an Aerospace Engineer, and work for the 433 Technical Fighter Squadron in Bagotville. It was great.

5. What do you like the most about your job?

I love advocacy, and I love being in court. I get to argue and I’m actually paid to do it.

Thank you.
