Scope and content

The correspondence in this series consists of incoming and outgoing letters to a wide variety of personal and professional acquaintances of Professor Friedland. Included are many of his students, lawyers (including attorneys-general and ministers of justice), members of the Supreme Court of Canada and of provincial courts, and foreign judicial figures. Some of the files contain letters of reference and appraisals. Included with the correspondence are memoranda, addresses (especially ones relating to the awarding of honorary degrees at the University of Toronto), and some student papers.

In general, correspondence relating to a specific project will be found with that project. Documents that do not naturally belong to another project can be found here. So, for example, correspondence and other documents from Rob Prichard on conflicts of interest are contained in the boxes relating to that subject and correspondence from my Cambridge supervisor, Glanville Williams, relating to my work on double jeopardy are to be found in the boxes dealing with double jeopardy. Other correspondence is filed alphabetically in these boxes.
