He received a BA from the University of Manitoba in 1923 and an LLD from the Manitoba Law School in 1926. He practiced law in the firm of Aikins, Loftus, Aikins, Williams and Macaulay before joining the provincial civil service as a legal assistant in the department of the Manitoba Attorney-General. In 1934, he was appointed legislative counsel for the Manitoba government, succeeding J. C. Collinson. He was made a King’s Counsel in January 1938. He later moved to Ontario where, in September 1961, he became senior partner in the law firm of McLean, Campbell, Rogers, Lyons and Kerr.
