Under The Queen's Counsel Act, the Lieutenant Governor in Council may bestow on lawyers in Saskatchewan the honorary title of "Queen's Counsel for the Province of Saskatchewan".

With the exception of the appointment of the Attorney General as Queen's Counsel, lawyers must have been entitled to practice in any province in Canada or the Northwest Territories, or in Great Britain or Ireland for a period of 10 years before they can be appointed.

If a lawyer who holds the appointment of Queen's Counsel is disbarred under The Legal Profession Act, the appointment is automatically revoked.
