Moen graduated from the College of Law, University of Saskatchewan in 1979, and held various roles in the field of public law and policy. His experience also includes two years working at the House of Commons in Ottawa in the early 1980s. In his new role, will teach a class, support the internship program and lead some executive training workshops. He will work out of the JSGS Regina campus several days a week.
